Lawry calls stumps
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.
