    Former New Zealand cricketer Jock Edwards has died, aged 64

    Former New Zealand cricketer Jock Edwards has died, aged 64

    Edwards, who played eight tests and six one-dayers, was famous for his big-hitting ability in the 1970s and 1980s.

    He was also recalled as a character.

    In a charity match at Cooks Gardens, Whanganui he was once asked to field from fine leg to fine leg.

    Edwards tired of this after a couple of overs, so eventually completed the task with the assistance of a bike he grabbed by the Snell Pavilion.
