The tribute comes after Brooke honoured one of the most iconic moments in her father’s career.

Five months after his sudden death, his eldest daughter shared a poignant tribute to the late and great cricketer.

While visiting a very special place in the ‘Spin King’s’ career, Old Trafford Cricket Ground, it was impossible for Brooke not to reflect on her dad’s impact.

Posting photos from the sentimental day, Brooke penned: “Old Trafford Cricket Ground holds a very special place in My families and my Heart, it was very special to be able to visit the ground where the Ball of The Century took place as well as Dads 600th Wicket.
