Over a hundred years ago, there was Jimmy Sinclair, the first man to score a century and take six wickets in an innings in a test match. More recently was the brilliant era of Eddie Barlow, Tiger Lance, Mike Procter and Clive Rice, as well as Tony Greig and Basil D'Oliveira, South Africans who played for England. A great tradition was established for the modern era: since re-admission in 1992 there has been Brian McMillan, Shaun Pollock, Lance Klusener and, the greatest of them all, Jacques Kallis. Jacques Kallis and 12 Other Great South African All-Rounders is about the 13 men each of whom were worth two or three players in one, worth their place as batsmen or bowlers, adored by the fans, and capable of changing a game with either of their skills. With a readable mix of anecdotes, commentary and statistics, Jacques Kallis and 12 Other Great South African All-Rounders is the first book about these multitalented heroes of cricket. A very special feature of the book is the inclusion of the careers of four black allrounders who were unable to play for national teams because of their race.

About the Author:

Ali Bacher captained Transvaal aged 21 and played 12 tests between 1965 and 1970, when he captained South Africa to a 4-0 Test whitewash of Australia. He went on to a distringuished career in cricket administration culminating in the hosting of the 2003 World Cup in South Africa. As a player, captain, selector and administrator, he worked closely with all but two of the 13 all rounders selected for this book, and for this book interviewed the seven who were alive in 2012.

David Williams was deputy Editor of the Financial Mail, and has worked extensively in radio (notably on 702 and Highveld) and television, specialising in sports and business coverage. He has written several books on sport and military history, and is in demand as a conference speaker and facilitator.

Book Description Penguin Books (SA) (Pty) Ltd, South Africa, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. South Africa has produced more great all-rounders than any other country. Jimmy Sinclair was the first to score a century and take six wickets in an innings in the same Test; Aubrey Faulkner is still the only man with a Test batting average over 40 and a bowling average under 30. Trevor Goddard opened the batting and became the most economical bowler in history. Eddie Barlow, Mike Procter and Clive Rice could change a game in a few overs with bat or ball. Tony Greig and Basil D Oliveira became iconic England players. In the modern era, the national side could call on four talented all-rounders, including Jacques Kallis, greatest of them all after Sir Garfield Sobers. These 13 cricketers were worth two players in one. Now their careers are examined for the first time in one book - as are those of others who, but for apartheid, might have been their equals.
