A moment for Scott Mason

Scott who?

Well, in the whirl of international cricket, where one day is a long time, where the condition of Sachin Tendulkar's elbow sends an entire nation into a tizzy, spare a moment for Scott Robert Mason, the Tasmanian opening batsman, who died at the age of 28 of a heart failure. While it always seems a terrible waste when someone dies so early, you can't help feeling worse when it happens to a young cricketer with his best ahead of him.

So, as Peter Newlinds writes in his piece, on ABC Sport let us look beyond the obvious for just one moment.

... for those of us who watched him and who followed his career closely "Maso" won't be forgotten and his cruel, tragic death at the age of 28 will remind us that there are plenty of more important things than a man's career stats.

And, here's what colleague, captain and team-mate Jamie Cox had to say about him:

Just such a likeable guy, and an inspiration, and I guess you could say tragically but ironically he was one of the heartbeats of our team. There aren't enough words to say enough about this little mate, he was a beauty.

Such tragic news, and eepest sympthies to Sotts family and friends from a small town, Stony Stratfod in England, I was fortunate to have watched Scott score a hundred in a game that took place between an overseas XI and the Duke of Norfolks team at Arundel in the south of England. I would not say I knew Scott, my aquaintance was through Shannon Tubb, our overseas player that year and a good friend of Scotts from the Tasmanian team, simply that I saw him score a delighful hundred on a sun soaked day at one of the most beautiful venues for cricket that England has to offer. My memories of that innings were of quick hands and perfet timing. Average non pro cricketers always wonder "how big is the gap between club and first class cricket"....that day Scott showed me, the difference is enourmous ,however Scott made it look easy.

Если бы мне, болельщику с 35-летним стажем, еще недавно сказали, что «Зенит» может обыграть марсельский «Олимпик» на его поле, да еще до начала своего внутреннего чемпионата, я бы вряд ли поверил. Но в минувший четверг отложил валидол в сторону уже на пятой минуте матча.
