The story of cricket’s second tied Test has vividly been told by Adelaide-based cricket writer Michael Sexton (author of Chappell’s Last Stand)
Border’s Battlers is sub titled: the furnace of Madras, the tied Test, a defining moment in Australian cricket.
It is a 336 page softback … I have access to just a limited supply of signed by the author copies, so if you would like one please act now — and pre-pay.
I am expecting my copies in mid July… like Chappell’s Last Stand, his previous cricket book, this is cricket nostalgia at its very best.
It is a riveting story, wonderfully told. And leads into Australia’s World Cup triumph a year later, also in India.
We do recommend it.
