Cricketer, footballer, media identity and best selling author Max Walker has died aged 68.

Walker played 34 Tests for Australia, before moving on to a successful career as a commentator and writer.

He was named a Member of the Order of Australia in 2011, but also battled prostate cancer post-retirement.

Australian cricket great Ian Chappell told Neil Mitchell that Walker was a formidable cricketer.

‘Tangles was all elbows and arms and thrashing around, as you said, he wasn’t the quickest … and he certainly wasn’t the best looking player, but I reckon he would have been a nightmare to play against,’ Chappell told 3AW Mornings.
