The former Australian Cricketer Alan Davidson expired at the age of 92. This led to a state of mourning within the Cricket community all over the world. Davidson was the first player in 1960, to take 10 wickets and score 100 runs in a Single Test. His expiry was announced by Cricket Australia on Sunday. 

He was the brilliant all-rounder for Australia and New South Wales. Davidson’s performance on the pitch leaves an enormous legacy across the levels of cricket in Australia and even in all the games. He was a left-arm swing bowler who claimed 186 wickets and scored 1328 runs during his career, played in 44 Tests for Australia, and was inducted into the International Cricket Council's Hall of Fame in 2011.

The CA Chair mentioned in a statement, that Alan Davidson's passing is a sad moment for Australian cricket and for cricket across the world. Davidson had been a colossal figure in all the games and hence he was the finest player to represent Australia and NSW, but for the very positive influence, he exerted across the game as an administrator, mentor, and benefactor.

  "The tremendous skill and the boundless spirit with which Alan embraced cricket and life embodied everything that is great about the game.

"He will remain a shining example for every player who follows in his footsteps."

Alan Davidson made his professional debut for Australia during 1953, Ashes series and prior to that in 1960 he became the first player to take 10 wickets and score 100 runs in a single Test.

After the retirement, Davidson had spent five years in the post of the Australian Test selector from 1979 until 1984. 

His death news came up within the 24 hours after the death of Ashely Mallet, who was also one of the finest and the greatest spin bowlers of Australia, who died of cancer in Adelaide.
