Sydney: Flags flew at half-mast on Sunday at the Sydney Cricket Ground while officials made plans to honor former England captain and Australian television commentator Tony Greig during the third cricket Test against Sri Lanka.

The South African-born Greig was also honored with a moment's silence at an Australian domestic Twenty20 match on Saturday night, while Australian players were expected to wear black armbands at the SCG Test beginning on Thursday.

Greig, 66, who had been suffering from lung cancer, died of a heart attack on Saturday at his Sydney home. Funeral arrangements have not been disclosed.
