Cricket club expresses sadness over Martin-Jenkins' death

The president of the Marylebone Cricket Club has paid tribute to celebrated cricket broadcaster Christopher Martin-Jenkins, who died aged 67 today. Mike Griffith said:

CMJ will be sorely missed. I was fortunate to know him from his schooldays at Marlborough College and we became good friends.

As a commentator and journalist he was passionate about upholding the values of the game and always expressed his views with clarity and humour.

Everyone at MCC shares the sadness now being felt by the cricketing world that his live commentaries will never be heard again.
