Summary

Cricket enthusiasts endlessly debate the question of who are the best Australian players across different eras? In this book, experienced journalist and sports writer Liam Hauser selects his immortal team from players who didn't just dominate, they changed the game with their sheer will. In a sport saturated with statistics and analysis and changes to rules, equipment and playing conditions, and with more than 100 years of traditions and personalities to consider, just how do you make your selection? Who makes the cut and who misses out? It is sure to lead to lively discussions and debate, and certainly controversy. But whether you agree or disagree, cricket followers around the world will find this volume provides a new perspective for the debate and an invaluable insight into the cricketing careers of some of Australia's all-time immortals.
