Former Somerset all-rounder and umpire Bill Alley has died in Taunton aged 85.
Australian Alley made his name in England, scoring 19,612 first-class runs and taking 738 wickets with his medium pace bowling.
In 1961 he became the last player to score more than 3,000 runs in an English season.
A former prize-fighting boxer he officiated in 10 Test matches between 1974 and 1981 and was regarded as one of the game's great characters.
Former Somerset team-mate Peter Robinson told The Times: "Bill was as hard as nails, fearless.
"There can't be many better cricketers who didn't appear in Test cricket."
