Australian Test leg-spinner Bob "Dutchy" Holland has died following a battle with brain cancer, aged 70, his family said today.
Holland died after suffering a brain bleed while in hospital being treated for broken ribs suffered in a fall last week, his son Craig said.
Holland was diagnosed with an aggressive brain cancer in late March and had surgery a week later to remove part of the tumour, followed by chemotherapy and radiation treatment.
He appeared in 11 Tests, taking 34 wickets, and in 95 first-class matches, most of them for New South Wales, and was still playing state cricket into his forties.
He is survived by his wife, Carolyn, two sons and a daughter.
