As has been reported in the "Hooroo Mate" forum, Arthur Morris died on Saturday aged 93. He was Australia's oldest surviving test cricketer. This mantle has now passed to Len Maddocks aged 89.
I find this interesting that there is no Australian (male) test cricketer over 90 (and only 13 in their 80s). I would think this is statistically unlikely based on the life expectancy of an Australian male and the number of test cricketers (but I would need to check the maths). According to Cricinfo there are only 9 ex-test cricketers over 90, the best known being Everton Weekes. I wonder if there is any reason for cricketers having shorter lives than their cohorts. I could understand a higher rate of skin cancers for Australian cricketers of this vintage as they did not have the advantage of modern sunscreens.
Arthur Morris's death also leaves Neil Harvey as the sole remaining member of the 1948 Invincibles and I think the last link to Bradman as far as test players go (looking through the list I can't see any who played against Bradman either.
