About this Item

168 indexed pages including b/w illustrations. Cricket is an extraordinary game - and a great deal of its drama and excitement comes from players’ first appearances and their last. Perhaps the most heart- wrenching debut was by Dr Roy Park, who scared a first ball duck and was never selected again. On the other hand, Graham Gooch made a pair in his Test debut and retired ‘I ‘I8 Tests later after making nearly 9000 runs. The final appearance of a star performer can be equally glorious, or inglorious. In his farewell Test at Sydney in I983-84, Greg Chappell eclipsed Sir Donald Bradman’s Test batting aggregate. However, no swan song is so much a part of cricketing folklore as Bradman’s final Test at the Oval in I948, when he made a second-ball nought. Kersi Meher-Hon? has made a persona! selection of some of the most famous and/or dramatic debuts and farewells in Test, ?rst class and international cricket history. Illustrated with sometimes rare photographs, meticulously researched and written with clarity and a twinkle in the eye, this book is a rich and fascinating source of cricketing lore. Kersi Meher-Homji is an Australian journalist, author and biographer. He writes often for the Sydney Morning Herald. Size: 12mo. Bookseller Inventory # 055261
