Peter Roebuck was an English cricketer who represented his country in cricket from 1974 to 1988. He was a right-handed batsman and right-arm off-break bowler. He is well-known for his consistent action of playing cricket without any break. The number of runs he scored was over 25,000.

If we speak about the legacy of Perter Roebuck, he was the mentor of an Australian cricketer Ed Cowan. Cowan made a maiden century in the First Test between Australia and South Africa at the Brisbane in 2012, after one year of Roebuck’s death. Cowan dedicated that century to Roebuck’s memory.

Peter Roebuck was a great man and very introverted by nature, he used to be alone and calm and never required companionship. A talented player in the ’80s has a very tragic life. His sexuality was always a point of gossip.

After retirement from cricket in 1992, he started working as a journalist and commentator. His words were as strong as his game. He had boldly presented his views on political and various issues while writing the newspaper Sydney Morning and in Sunday Times. He was a great writer. Rather than cricket, he used to be loved for his writing skill and thought process. He used to construct his thought on any issue with such ease with grammatical correctness. His style of writing and wrapping words into a statement was excellent. It wouldn’t be wrong if we say that he was born to be a writer than a cricketer.

It was a disappointing period when he got injured and couldn’t play. He was later charged with sexual harassment and was interrogated by police and then he committed suicide.

Harsha Bhogale, the former Indian Cricketer and now commentator have shared his words and experience with Peter which was amazing. He said, his extraordinary talent and multiple aspects of his personality created a special array of memories in everyone’s mind. It’s very fair to recall and remember the deeds and of such a complicated persona in today’s cricket which is globally spread on the planet.
