Description

England, Summer 1975. The Australian cricket team, visiting for an Ashes series, fields players who will become legends of the game – Ian Chappell, Rodney Marsh, Dennis Lillee, Jeff Thomson.  It is the pinnacle of the game of cricket – the two oldest enemies in the game going head to head. But cricket is about to undergo a revolution. It will no longer be a game of tradition, run by traditionalists. The World Series Cricket revolution means fast cricket under lights, players in colourful gear, and new multi-camera broadcasts on television. This thrilling book tells the story of WSC and the Australian media mogul Kerry Packer, who saw a business opportunity in the game he loved and challenged its grand traditions, setting up a whole parallel universe of cricket. It is a riveting tale of elite sportsmen, money and power, tradition versus innovation and a high-stakes legal drama. It is also at its heart a tale of love of the game.
