Hampshire chairman Rod Bransgrove has led the tributes to ex-coach and player Peter Sainsbury, who has passed away aged 80.
The former all-rounder, a Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1974, is the only Hampshire player to win two County Championship titles.
Bransgrove told the club’s official website: “We are all sharing a profound sense of loss at the sad passing of one of the club’s true legends as both a player and a person.
“Our sympathies and thoughts are with Peter’s wife, Joyce and his devoted family. A sad day for Hampshire Cricket.”
