Holding, one of the most respected voices in cricket, is to retire after a broadcasting career just as distinguished as a playing one that saw him become one of the greatest of all fast bowlers.
Used words economically, knew when to speak and what to say, erudite, not afraid to voice an opinion, but never controversial for the sake of a headline and I could listen to his voice recite a grocery list.Holding quietly slipped away into retirement after the abandoned final Test in Manchester, confirming to Sportsmail on Wednesday night that while he has not announced his decision, his time is indeed up. He will leave a huge gap.
Yep, I was a fan, will be sorely missed from the commentary box.
