My 65th and latest cricket book is a quirky ABC of Australian Cricket, being published in October by Echo/Bonnier Books.
My Australia-wide cricket miscellany of fun, facts, oddities and anecdote includes a foreword by Scott Boland, who ended the Christmas Test early with a remarkable spell of six for 7.
This entertaining and unique 192-page ‘ABC’ touches cricket at all levels and includes a foreword by Scott Boland.
Among the stories are:
The boy who saved Shane Warne from drowning;
The bush batting legend who forgot his bat;
The noted stone-waller who played boogie-woogie piano:
The bush ground where one boundary is so close you are given only two;
The fast bowler who went AWOL to the Caulfield races and was timed out;
The Test paceman who bowled in bloomers;
The 73-year-old who played first-grade;
AND The farmer run out for 99 after his artificial leg fell off.
