The A-Z of Australian Cricketers provides the fullest and most reliable guide to the careers and achievements of all your favourite cricketers. Everyone who has represented Australia at Test level receives an entry, along with many other outstanding first-class and Limited Overs players.
All the major cricketers are included – Benaud, Border, Bradman, the Chappells, Lillee, Miller, Trumper, Walters, the Waugh twins – along with the stars of a new generation, such as Blewett, Elliott, McGrath and Warne.
More than 600 biographies trace the cricketers' backgrounds, idiosyncrasies, batting or bowling techniques, career highlights, and any controversies in which they were involved. Each entry also includes comprehensive statistical data, covering Tests, first-class matches, Limited Overs (both domestic and international) and captaincy results at all four levels.
Drawn from the highly successful ‘Oxford Companion to Australian Cricket’, and prepared by the same team of cricket experts, The A-Z of Australian Cricketers is a concise and entertaining guide to the notable exponents of the national game.
