Synopsis: As a former county player, Andrew Murtagh is often asked, "who is the best batsman he has ever played with or against?" His answer is always unequivocal—"Richards." And then comes the inevitable rider—"Barry, that is, not Viv." It is a travesty that the cricket world has largely forgotten Barry Richards—a cricketing genius. Debuting for South Africa in 1970, his run-scoring, technique, and audacious, extravagant strokeplay took the breath away. A glittering international career beckoned. However, the apartheid storm burst, and Richards had played his first and last Test series. Consigned to plying his trade for Hampshire, Natal, and South Australia, Richards became increasingly frustrated and disenchanted with the game he had loved. Following retirement, personal tragedy and professional controversy continued to stalk him, though he has now come to an uneasy acceptance that he will be forever known as the genius lost to Test cricket.

About the Author: Andrew Murtagh is the author of A Remarkable Man: The Story of George Chesterton, which was shortlisted for the MCC Cricket Society Book of the Year, and Touched by Greatness, which was long-listed for the same award. All-rounder Andrew played for Hampshire in the 1970s, and subsequently became an English teacher at Malvern College.
