Description

Details

"The History of Australian Cricket" was first published in 1993, when Australia was just beginning to dominate world cricket for a fourth time. Since then, they have proved themselves masters of both the one-day and five-day versions of the game. Throughout this book, cricket events are richly counter-pointed by background arrangements (and feuds) between the Board and State Associations and the remarkable career of Sir Donald Bradman is chronicled in detail. Taking in the Bodyline tour and all others before and since, this book provides unique insight into Australian cricket history right up to the modern day. Australia are probably the greatest cricket team the world has ever seen and this is the story of their journey to the top.
