    The International Cricket Council (ICC) expressed its condolences for the disappearance of former New Zealand skipper John Reid, who took his last breath at the age of 92 on Wednesday

    Expressing sorrow over the passing of the great New Zealand cricketer, ICC Director General Manu Sawhney praised Reid’s contribution to the game of cricket as a player and captain of his time and more late as a distinguished ICC match referee

    « It’s a sad day for cricket John was not only one of the best all-rounders of his time, but also a great captain, leading New Zealand to their first three Test wins. He continued to contribute playing in various capacities after his retirement and had an admirable stint as ICC match referee, ”said Sawhney in the official ICC press release

    « I offer my sincere condolences on behalf of all ICC members to the family of one of football’s greatest and whose career as a player, captain and match official will long remain in the memories « , he added

    Reid, a hard-hitting batsman and stimulator, appeared in a total of 58 games for New Zealand in the game’s longest format He had played 34 of those test matches as captain and had 3,428 runs and 85 wickets in the 1949-1965 format. He was considered an extraordinary outfielder, who also kept wickets during tests

    Reid’s record as captain was unique as he not only led New Zealand to their first victory after 26 years of testing cricket when the team defeated West Indies in Auckland in 1956, but also to their first success abroad when New Zealand won two Tests during a tour of South Africa in 1962

    After saying goodbye to testing, Reid was the national selector and team manager before taking over as ICC match referee from 1993 to 2002, officiating in 50 tests and 98 ODIs
