    I always enjoyed him on "the debate".
    As far as im aware, they mentioned he was ill which is why he was off screen.

    Sky got rid of three of the team and he was one I think. They referred to him on Sky Sports News tonight as “ex pundit”.
    I know he had been fighting Prostate cancer for 3 years but I am pretty sure he was one of the 3. He may have left due to illness.
    Whatever, it is such a sad loss for his family and cricket.

    Bob you truly were a legend, a word banded about like confetti ,these days, but you are a very worthy recipient of such an accolade.
    Another true 'ledge' taken from us, too soon.
    As many have said, people of my era will always remember 1981 and of more recent times, your accurate assessment of a day's play.
    Didn't realise you were ill and it speaks volumes that you were still on ''The Debate'' until very recently. Top man. You'll be sorely missed.
    RIP big fella.

    Juice Wrld: US rapper dies aged 21 'after seizure at airport'

    Juice Wrld, real name Jarad Anthony Higgins, was considered to be a rising star of rap music

    Juice Wrld, a US rapper who shot to fame on music streaming platforms, has died at the age of 21.

    Celebrity news website TMZ said he died after suffering a seizure at Chicago's Midway airport on Sunday morning.

    The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office said the cause was unknown.

    Juice Wrld, real name Jarad Anthony Higgins, was best-known for his viral 2018 hit Lucid Dreams. Mental health, mortality and drug use were common themes in his music.

    His record label, Interscope Geffen A&M Records, said Juice Wrld was an "exceptional human being" who "made a profound impact on the world in such a short period of time".

    Chicago police told the BBC a 21-year-old man suffered a medical emergency at around 02:00 local time (08:00 GMT) and was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told the Chicago Sun Times there were "no signs of foul play" and it was unclear whether drugs played a role in his death.

    Who was Juice Wrld?
    Born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1998, Juice Wrld was raised by his single mother, described as a religious and conservative woman who forbade him from listening to hip hop.

    He started rapping in high school, using online music streaming platform SoundCloud to upload and promote his music.

    Juice Wrld went on to release his debut full-length EP, 999, on the platform in 2017, garnering him attention from fellow Chicago-based artists such as G Herbo and Lil Bibby.

    Drugs and guns found on Juice Wrld's jet, police say

    Stars including Drake, Chance The Rapper and Ellie Goulding have paid tribute to the star

    Police say they found guns and drugs on the private jet that carried rapper Juice Wrld to Chicago before he died on Sunday morning.

    Law enforcement officials were waiting for the plane when it landed, having received information that banned substances might be onboard.

    It was during a subsequent search of the aircraft that the rapper had a seizure that led to his death.

    An autopsy on the 21-year-old has proved inconclusive.

    The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office said on Monday that additional studies were needed before they could determine the cause of death.

    Police in Chicago said they did not suspect foul play; but gave some additional details that shed light on the sudden death of one of hip-hop's brightest rising stars.

    Their search uncovered 41 "vacuum-sealed" bags of marijuana, six bottles of prescription codeine cough syrup, two 9 mm pistols, a .40-caliber pistol, a high-capacity ammunition magazine and metal-piercing bullets, authorities told the US media, including the Chicago Tribune and the New York Times.

    Two men identified by police as Juice Wrld's security guards have been charged with illegally possessing guns and ammunition.
