Ian Chappell, the former Australia captain, announced his decision to retire from commentary after a span of nearly 45 years.

Along with Richie Benaud, Bill Lawry, and Tony Greig, Ian Chappell was one of the distinctive voices on Channel Nine.

Chappell was also asked about his legacy and how he would like to be remembered as a commentator, to which he replied: "It's up to other people to decide what they think of me and some will think I've been all right. Some will think I've been a pr**k. That doesn't bother me one bit."

Recently, Chappell had been facing health issues, including a diagnosis of skin cancer. However, he has not shied away from being an independent voice and being a critic of the game.
