NEW DELHI, April 10 (PTI): The BCCI today extended its condolences to the family and friends of Richie Benaud terming him as �one of the greatest leg-spinners and an astute captain to have led Australia� and someone who carried himself with �grace and dignity�.

�Renowned as one of the greatest leg-spinners and an astute captain to have led Australia, Richie Benaud was a fine example of a highly competitive sportsman who carried himself with dignity and grace, on and off the field,� BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur was quoted as saying in a press release.

�Indian cricket remembers his exploits on Australia�s first tour of India in 1956-57, which was dominated by spinners, and Richie Benaud emerged as a clear winner, claiming 23 wickets in three Tests.
