Synopsis

Greg Chappell was the outstanding Australian batsman of his generation. Though he had an appetite for big scores, it was his calm brow and courtly manner that bowlers found just as disheartening. When he followed his brother Ian into the Australian captaincy, his feat of scoring centuries in each innings of his captaincy debut has been unequalled. After retiring he went into coaching, spending some time with South Australia and working as a consultant at Pakistans National Cricket Academy. In 2005 he was appointed coach of the Indian national cricket team on a two year term a stint that included a stormy public falling out with the captain, Sourav Ganguly. He has been Head Coach of Cricket Australias Centre of Excellence in Brisbane and in 2010 Greg Chappell was made Cricket Australias first full-time selector and National Talent Manager a position of unequalled power. In this book Greg Chappell will reflect upon how things have changed since he grew up playing cricket in his backyard with his brothers Ian and Trevor; how Australias fortunes have see-sawed over the years; the great teams and the great players; the scandals and the opportunities. He has been a cricketer, captain, commentator and selector he has seen it all.
