Summary

Swashbuckling and fearless, Ian Chappell epitomised Australian cricket in the 1970s. When he gave up the Test captaincy, he set out to salvage south Australian pride. Chappell’s Last Stand zooms in on what was supposed to be the mercurial cricketer’s last year as a player, when he went to war with administrators and took his state side from wooden spoon ignominy to shield glory. Described in vivid detail by ABC journalist Michael Sexton, Chappell’s Last Stand investigates an astounding year of cricket from the perspectives of those who witnessed it first-hand. Illustrating the tenacity and cricketing genius of Ian Chappell, it provides unique insight into the rivalries, talents and tensions of a pivotal time in the sport, when the revolution of World Series Cricket was looming. Featuring interviews with the greats from the era – Ian and Greg Chappell, Dennis Lillee, the late Terry Jenner and David Hookes, Rod Marsh, Jeff Thomson, Ashley Mallett and many more.
