Former Aussie leg-spinner Tony Mann who played 4 tests between 1977 and 1978 died at the age of 74 after a prolonged battle with cancer. Mann was the second nightwatchman to have scored a Test century after Pakistan's Nasim-ul-Ghani when he scored 105 against India. Mann had a decorated domestic career playing for Western Australia. Tony bagged 200 wickets and scored 2544 runs with two hundreds and 11 fiftes in first-class cricket.

"We are deeply saddened to learn of Tony's passing. Tony was a strong contributor to the local community in Western Australia and Australian Cricket generally. He was an excellent allrounder - a left-hand bat and legspin bowler - through four Tests and 80 first-class matches," Cricket Australia chief executive Kevin Roberts said. Tony is known to have essayed a key role in the careers of many Western Australia players including the likes of Adam Gilchrist and Brad Hogg.
