Graeme Watson, an all-rounder who featured in five Tests and two ODIs for Australia, died at 75 following a battle with cancer.

Watson, a middle-order batsman and medium-pace bowler, finished his career with 4,674 runs and 186 wickets from 107 First-Class games.  Starting his playing days at Victoria, he moved on to Western Australia, with whom he won the Sheffield Shield, and then to New South Wales, becoming a rare player to represent three states. He made fifty on international debut during the 1966-67 tour of South Africa but that remained his highest Test score in a career marred by injuries.
