Summary

An Indian Summer of Cricket: Reflections on Australia's Summer Game' includes interviews with players, commentators and cricket lovers and explore how this unique game has affected our summers and reflected our view of ourselves. 'An Indian Summer' is a stunning combination of Australia's cricket, military and political history, built around the 2011/2012 Indian cricket team tour of Australia. Malcolm's writing will intrigue and delight lovers of cricket, history and literature. Now, as Cate McGregor, he will continue his career as speechwriter to the chief of the Australian Army. It has been a long, tortuous yet fruitful journey, and McGregor takes us back with him, at the same time as he regretfully relates the end of an era of greatness in Indian cricket (that he covered as a journalist for 'The Spectator Australia'). The book's title has multiple resonances. Immediately, it refers to the 2011-12 Test series (which also prompts McGregor's childhood memories of the Indian tour of 1967-68). Perhaps also, in his mid-50s, McGregor is reaching an Indian summer of his own.
