Benaud signs for three more seasons

from cricinfo
-------
The voice of Australian cricket will be heard for at least three more
seasons after Richie Benaud accepted a deal to stay in the commentary box.
Speculation of Benaud's retirement had grown to the extent that an apparent
successor had been agreed in Mark Nicholas, the former England A captain.

But Nine today ended the rumours that Benaud, 74, was hanging up the
microphone and beige jackets. "Richie is an icon of Australian cricket and
he has signed a contract to stay on for another three years," the spokesman
Jamie Campbell said. "He loves the game. Cricket is his passion and his life
and he has no intention of stopping as a commentator any time soon."
Campbell said there was no point discussing potential replacements for
Benaud, who started with the network in 1977.

Campbell also said Ian Chappell was being rested from the Adelaide Test as
part of the commentary team's rotational policy, a method under
consideration for Australia's bowlers. "There are three different teams
coming to Australia this summer and overseas commentators will be used,"
Campbell said. "As a result we have Tests where the commentators have the
chance to take a break." Chappell was reportedly angry at the move.
