Richie Benaud talks about skin cancer


Former Australian cricketer and Channel Nine commentator Richie Benaud shared few points on how to protect to skin from getting affected.

“When I was a kid, we never ever wore a cap. That’s because Keith Miller never wore a cap. Arthur Morris did when he went out to bat. We follow various people and ‘Nugget’ Miller never wore anything on his head, so I didn’t. I wish I had. You live and learn as you go along,” he said.

Benaud was at the Sydney Cricket Ground where the Channel Nine broadcast team including Bill Lawry, Ian Chappell, Mark Nicholas, Brett Lee and Shane Warne were present.

He said, “I’m going along slowly. The cancers need to be treated.”

He also added, “I recommend to everyone they wear protection on their heads. Eighty-four-year olds don’t seem to mend as well as they used to.”
