Helmets, white balls, coloured clothing and (even worse) professional players? It’s just not cricket! Except it is, thanks to an Aussie mogul who dared challenge those who ran the ‘gentleman’s game.’
In this book, former AFL star, Austin Robertson, tells the story of Kerry Packer’s World Series Cricket. Including more than 40 first-hand accounts from such greats as Dennis Lillee, Viv Richards, Ian Chappell, Richard Hadlee and Michael Holding, this book is the story of a man who may have lost a battle but (arguably) won the war.
