Former Australian Test cricketer Max Walker has died, aged 68, after an eight-year international cricket career with Australia.

Walker made his Test debut in 1973 and took 138 wickets in 34 Tests, with his bizarre medium-pace bowling action earning him the nickname 'Tangles'.

He also played 17 one-day internationals from 1974 to 1981, with his handlebar moustache and knock-about style making him a fan favourite.

He was such a great character. I remember him on the Sunday Footy show all those years ago with Lou Richards and Ted Whitten.

RIP Max :(

RIP Tangles - Can still remember a lot of crucial wickets you have taken in tests as back up to Lillee and Thommo.

Great character as well. Did not know he had melanomas but a gentle warning to us all who play or have played outdoor sport to have regular skin checks.

Never knew he was sick with cancer until now.  :(
One of the great Australian sporting larrikins on and off the field. Very funny and very kind loved by everyone that knew him and by alot that didn't know him personally. So many memories of Max, on the field seen him play, on TV as a host of a few shows, his adverts and his books.

RIP Mr Walker, taken far to soon.
