Twitter reacts: #RIPMartinCrowe

New Zealand batting great Martin Crowe has passed away after a long battle with cancer, and the great and good of the game reacted in their droves on social media.

Such was the influence of the Black Cap's greatest batsman, according to many, that tributes poured in, not only from Kiwi players but from a huge variety of his former opponents, current players the world over, and his colleagues in the media.

This long list is just a selection, showing the impact Crowe had as a player, a mentor, and a friend. Condolences to his family and loved ones.


You will always be a legend in my eyes. Thank you for all your help and advice. Now you can rest easy my friend. Miss you already
