She's not too good this particular morning.
 
Margot Moir, 55, Scottish-born Australian singer and one of The Moir Sisters has died. The Moir Sisters were an Australian pop group from the mid-1970s. Their big hit was Good Morning (How Are You?), which was released in 1974. It remained on the Australian charts for 27 weeks and peaked at number 8. "The group consisted of three sisters: Jean (born 1957), Margot (1959-2015) and Lesley (1962), who were born in Scotland, to Edward and June Moir, and moved to Melbourne, Australia, in the early 1960s. They launched their act in 1970 and in 1974 won a talent quest called New Faces on Melbourne's GTV-9, going on to compete in the national final."

Richie did not commentate during the Sydney Test. Maybe he was making a tv commercial instead. I agree it will be sad when he goes, he has not been in good health for a few years now. I also must admit it was a toss up between Karl S. and David Koch; and wishful thinking on my behalf.

Richie Benaud is on tv starring in an ad promoting eating lamb on Australia Day.  While not looking the absolute picture of health he doesn't look like he is quite ready to leave the crease just yet.  However, considering that this ad "resurrected" Ned Kelly, Burke and Wills and Captain Cook (not to mention Ita Buttrose) is might all be smoke and mirrors.  

 

Did any Aussies hear whether Richie did any commentating of the Sydney test?  I was at work for the most of it and so could only listen on radio.
