TRIBUTES are pouring in after the deaths of Test greats Alan Davidson and Ashley Mallet.

Davidson died on Saturday at the age of 92 whereas fellow Australian great Mallett died from cancer on Friday aged 76.

Alan Davidson is considered as one of the greatest ever cricket players

Cricket Australia chairman Richard Freudenstein said: “Alan was a colossal figure in our game.

“Not only as one of the finest players to have represented Australia, but for the positive influence he exerted across the game as an administrator, mentor and benefactor.”

Freudenstein added: “Ashley Mallett was a wonderful player, admired journalist and highly acclaimed author.

“He played a significant part in Australian cricket not only as a player but as a prolific storyteller who has preserved the memories of some of the game’s greatest moments in time.”
