Sydney, Tue, 06 Nov 2012 ANI

Sydney, Nov. 6 (ANI): Cricket commentator Tony Greig would be missing this week's Gabba Test as he continues to receive treatment for a form of lung cancer.

It has been learnt that the former England captain and Nine Network commentator is very keen to return to the commentary box this summer.

However, Greig would be missing out on the Brisbane Test, where Australia plays its first match against South Africa on November 9, News.com.au reports.

South-African born Greig, who is a household name in Australia after defecting to be one of the spearheads of Kerry Packer's World Series Cricket in 1977, has asked the media to respect the privacy of the matter, the report said.

He has lived in Sydney since the late 1970s and has commentated cricket for Nine for 33 years, it added. (ANI)
