For Lancashire, he took more than 1000 first-class wickets and, after retiring in 1969, he was persuaded to return to playing by Leicestershire, for whom his last appearance came at the age of 49.He was renowned for getting out top-order batsmen and his most successful series for England saw him take 24 wickets against West Indies in 1966. Overall, he took 1536 first-class wickets and a further 355 in List A cricket.We are deeply saddened by the news that Ken has passed away, Leicestershire chairman, Paul Hayward, said. I had the great pleasure of playing alongside Ken and he was a truly great bowler who had a wonderful career record. Ken was well-respected by everyone at Leicestershire County Cricket Club and we would like to offer our condolences and best wishes to his family.Originally from Staffordshire, Higgs made his name at Lancashire, opening the bowling alongside Brian Statham. He took 7 for 36 on his Championship debut and claimed more than 100 wickets in a season on five occasions. He was named one of Wisdens Five Cricketers of the Year in 1968.He won his first England cap in 1965, in Stathams last Test, and took eight wickets against South Africa. Alongside a knack for wicket-taking and a parsimonious economy rate, he produced a memorable contribution with the bat to help England win the final Test at The Oval against West Indies in 1966, putting on 128 - two runs shy of the world record - for the last wicket with John Snow.The flags at Old Trafford were flying at half-mast on Wednesday, ahead of Englands T20 match against Pakistan.

He took 4 for 10, including a hat-trick, in the 1974 Benson & Hedges Cup final - although Leicestershire lost - and a few years later scored 98 batting a No. 11, during what remains a club record partnership of 228 with Ray Illingworth.Higgs went on to captain and coach the county, as well as making sporadic appearances until he was almost 50.

"Every game,” said Reyes when asked if hes been watching his teammates play. “I have nothing to do but watch the game and support the team from my house.” Reyes, who lives in New York with his wife and three children, has rejoined the club for the weekend series and Yankee Stadium and will accompany the team back to Toronto on Sunday evening. Its then the rehabilitation of his badly sprained left ankle will intensify. Since abandoning a walking boot more than a week ago, Reyes has been riding an exercise bike daily, trying to maintain his cardiovascular conditioning while working ankle-specific exercises. Progress was made three days ago when, under the watchful eye of his personal trainer, Rob Panariello, Reyes began jogging and hitting off a tee. Next, likely within two weeks, hell start running on a treadmill. Then when hes ready, hell move out to the field. "Believe me, sometimes my trainer, he gets crazy because I want to run so bad, I want to do everything in one day,” said Reyes. “But I have to think dont put myself back. Ive been through a lot of injuries in my career and I learned from that. I know I need to take my time, do my rehab the way Im supposed to do it and then go from there. I dont want to say take my time, but see every day how I feel and make the progression from that.” Reyes will consider the first time he runs the bases without pain a benchmark. Rounding the bases, stopping and starting on fly ball tag ups and secondary leads all puut torque on the ankle.dddddddddddd. When theyre accomplished without incident Reyes will know its time to play. In the meantime, Reyes was his typical jubilant self on Friday afternoon. He stretched with his teammates and hung around the shortstop position as Munenori Kawasaki took pregame ground balls. If one wondered why Reyes is choosing to return to Toronto next week instead of continuing his rehab at the Blue Jays complex in Dunedin, the reason became obvious watching Reyes interact with his teammates. “My rehab feels like it [will] take forever,” he said. “I just want to be here with my teammates, support the guys as best I can.” “Guys are glad to see him,” said manager John Gibbons. “Hes a sparkplug, he was earlier in the year for us and just him being around gives you that good feeling.” McGOWAN TO BUFFALO Dustin McGowan, on the 60-day disabled list rehabbing his surgically-repaired right shoulder, has been transferred to Triple-A Buffalo. The 31-year-old made two appearances with Single-A Dunedin, each a scoreless inning, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out four. McGowan last appeared in a major league game on September 26, 2011. He made five appearances that month, after injuries had kept him out of the big leagues since 2008. JOSH JOHNSON UPDATE Johnson threw a bullpen session in Dunedin on Thursday and reported good health. The plan is to have the right-hander join class-A Dunedin for a rehab assignment early next week. Earlier this week general manager Alex Anthopoulos pegged May 20 or 21 as possible dates for Johnson to see minor league game action.
