Tributes flooded in on Saturday following the death of Ireland cricket legend Roy Torrens from Covid-19.

The 72-year-old was involved in Irish cricket since making his debut as an 18-year old and subsequently went on to become Chairman of Selectors, Irish Cricket Union president and, for 11 successful years which included three World Cups, team manager.

Phil Simmons, now coach of West Indies, his friend and Ireland coach for eight of those years, sent his condolences from Bangladesh where the Caribbean side are currently touring.
