Lawry calls stumps

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

AUS­TRALIA’S favourite cricket et com­men­ta­tor, Bill Lawry, is poised to an­nounce his re­tire­ment from tele­vi­sion broad­cast­ing. The man fa­mous for the lines “got him, yes” or “it’s t’s all hap­pen­ing” had been ap­proached by Fox Sports and Chan­nel 7 as part of Aus­tralian cricket’s new broad­cast deal.

Lawry, who turned 81 in Fe­bru­ary, called the cricket on Chan­nel 9 for al­most 40 years.

In re­cent sea­sons, he cut back to cover just the Box­ing Day and Syd­ney Test matches.

Now he says it’s time to call stumps.
