Australian cricket great Keith Miller, an all-rounder in Donald Bradman's Invincibles team that toured England unbeaten in 1948, has died aged 84.
Miller was a stylish, swashbuckling performer for Australia
He played 55 Tests for Australia, and amassed 2,958 runs at an average of nearly 37 and took 170 wickets at 22.97 after making his debut in 1945-46.
He and fellow fast bowler Ray Lindwall formed an awesome Australian pairing.
Miller died on Monday at a nursing home on the Mornington Peninsula on the coast of Victoria, near Melbourne.
A gifted sportsman, he played 50 Australian Rules football games for the Melbourne team St Kilda in Australia's premier league and represented Victoria state in 1946.
Miller, also a World War II fighter pilot, is survived by his wife, Marie.
Cricket Australia chairman Bob Merriman said: "Keith Miller was a genuine legend, a man whose dashing approach helped cricket regain its place in the public affection after the dark years of World War II.
"He was one of those rare athletes who could turn a game with bat, ball or with an impossible catch.
"But more important, he was a man who understood that the game, great as it is, is just a game, and he played it that way.
"I had the rare privilege of knowing Keith as a person and his friendliness and friendship was a rare personal quality admired by cricket lovers of all ages from all around the world."
In February, Miller attended a ceremony at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, where a statue depicting him bowling, was unveiled.
