  2. The Sound of Summer - BOOK

    The Sound of Summer - BOOK

    $40.00

    The long-awaited autobiography from the voice of Australian cricket. For more than four decades, Jim Maxwell has called the cricket for the ABC. Since 1973 he has covered 285 Test matches, including over 50 Ashes Tests, six tours to the West Indies, seven to the subcontinent, and five World Cups. His distinctive voice, dryly understated humour and immense knowledge of the game have been part of the fabric of Australian cricket for generations of listeners. It's not too much to say that Jim has been the sound of our summer. In his long-awaited memoir he reflects on his life and career, on key cricket moments that he's witnessed, and on the many and varied characters he's met along the way. The Sound of Summer is a deep insight into one of our best-loved commentators, and a fascinating, warm, nostalgic and uniquely informed view of the game he loves. Learn More
  3. A Singular Man - BOOK

    A Singular Man - BOOK

    $45.00

    A Singular Man is a biography of Bevan Congdon, the first man to captain New Zealand to a win over Australia. It was perhaps apt that the understated and introvert Congdon was the one to succeed and not the more outgoing past captains such as Tom Lowry or John Reid. Apt since New Zealand cricket in the 60s and 70s was also the clear introvert when compared to Ian Chappell’s hirsute ‘ugly Australians’. Bevan Congdon fell into that unglamorous period of New Zealand cricket. Just after the retirement of legends such as Reid and Bert Sutcliffe and before the successful teams of the 1980s. This era is surprisingly neglected as it was the period where New Zealand not only first defeated Australia but also achieved their first win over England after 48 attempts. In A Singular Man, author Bill Francis, follows the traditional biographical format starting with Congdon’s formative years and rise through the cricketing ranks. The book flows and Francis is able to convey more of his subject’s personality in just 50 pages some modern Australian cricketing biographers struggle to achieve in 700+ pages. Learn More

  19. Cricket Outlaws - BOOK

    Cricket Outlaws - BOOK

    $39.95

    Author: Austin Robertson In the summer of 1977-78 Kerry Packer changed professional sport forever. Under a cloak of secrecy, the Aussie tycoon - together with maverick TV comics Paul Hogan and John 'Strop' Cornell, elite players Dennis Lillee, Tony Greig and Ian Chappell, and retired footy hero Austin Robertson - signed up 35 of the world's leading cricketers for a revolution called 'World Series Cricket'. Suddenly, the gentleman's game had four outlaw teams playing 'Supertests' and 50-over games at night under lights in crash helmets, using white balls and wearing coloured clothing. Slowly, then in a torrent, fans fell under the spell of day-night cricket airwaves jingling to 'C'mon Aussie C'mon' and supercharged TV coverage led by Richie Benaud. In the middle of this maelstrom was Austin Robertson: trusted lieutenant to Packer, and confidant to cricket's biggest stars. In Cricket Outlaws, Austin shares the real story of the World Series Cricket revolution for the first time - from the inside, in his own words and with vivid first-hand accounts from 48 of the game's biggest characters and key players behind the scenes, many speaking publicly on WSC for the first time.
