Robin Jackman tributes
Family, friends and loved ones of the deceased have taken to their social media pages to share tributes, kind words and prayer.
Our best wishes and love to the deceased’s family and friends.
“With the news of losing one Surrey great in John Edrich and now 24 hours later to have Jackers taken from us too soon is a huge blow to the club,” Thompson told the county’s website.
“Robin was a genuine Surrey great. Winning a County Championship, being a Wisden Cricketer of the Year and taking over 1400 first-class wickets puts him in a very special category.
“It was always great to see him at The Oval and he was never short of a great story. Robin Jackman will not be forgotten by those who were lucky enough to know him and watch him wear the Brown Cap with such pride and great distinction.”
A statement from the ICC read: “We are saddened to learn about the death of legendary commentator and former England bowler Robin Jackman, who has passed away aged 75.
“The thoughts of the cricketing world go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.”
Former New Zealand bowler and fellow commentator Danny Morrison tweeted: “Awoken to the sad news of dear buddy & comms colleague Robin Jackman passing… Blessed to have had wonderful times shared ‘Jackers’. RIP Rob”.
