New Delhi: Indian cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar paid tribute to former Australian captain and legendary commentator Richie Benaud, who passed away in Sydney.

"#RIPRichie Wonderful personality who was always warm and encouraging. Had great insights on the game...Fondly remember our discussion on the art of leg spin along with Official @ShaneWarne in Sharjah. Last spoke to him late last year," tweeted Sachin.

"Was not well but full of enthusiasm. Great loss to the world of cricket. Heartfelt condolences to Richie's family and friends," he said.

Benaud, who was battling skin cancer and had survived a major car accident in 2013, reportedly died peacefully while asleep last night. He was 84.

The former cricketer, who was the first to score 2,000 Test runs and take 200 Test wickets, played 63 five-day matches in his career.

Benaud took 248 wickets at an average of 27.03 and scored 2201 runs at 24.45 per innings with 122 being his highest knock.
