Extending our sincere and heartfelt condolences to the family of Bob Willis. Bob was a hugely-respected cricketer and captain and was well-liked by Kiwis. To lose someone of his standing is an extremely sad occurrence – not only for @englandcricket but the global cricket family.

Just landed in Dubai to hear the terrible news about Bob Willis. Fearsome fast bowler & fearless pundit. Yet such a gentle giant behind the scenes. An iconic cricketer & broadcaster. Thoughts with his family & all our friends @SkyCricket who have lost such a special man.

Flying over the Pacific and just heard the terribly sad news about Bob Willis. The England players are extremely shocked and saddened by the news of his death. One of the great fast bowlers and a brilliant pundit. He’s a great loss to cricket and sports broadcasting. #BobWillis

Saddened to hear that Bob Willis has died. One of our greatest fast bowlers. Met him on many occasions and he was always great company with a sense of humour that was as sharp as his bowling. #RIPBob
