Well, not exactly. He did bring in some other forms like Max cricket etc & one can argue that T20 was inspired from that.

Max Cricket

As you can read, free hit and all was inspired from that.

And now this.. England Cricket News: Tony Greig diagnosed with lung cancer | ESPN Cricinfo

Tony Greig, the former England captain, has been diagnosed with a form of lung cancer and will undergo a biopsy later this week to determine at what stage the disease is at and what the required course of action would be.

"I have had a few scrapes in my life and this is another one," Greig told the Sunday Telegraph. "[His wife] Vivian and I are going to put the boxing gloves on and fight this like we've never fought anything before."
