Description

CRICKET IS GOING TO GET REVOLUTIONISED WHETHER THEY LIKE IT OR NOT.

THERE IS NOTHING THEY CAN DO TO STOP ME. NOT A GODDAMN THING.' KERRY PACKER England, Summer 1975.

The Australian cricket team, visiting for an Ashes series, fields players who will become legends of the game: Ian Chappell, Rodney Marsh, Dennis Lillee, Jeff Thomson.

It is the pinnacle of the game of cricket -- the two oldest enemies going head to head.

But cricket is about to undergo a revolution, and the Establishment about to get hit for six.

This thrilling book by the writer of the acclaimed TV mini-series tells the story of World Series Cricket and the Australian billionaire Kerry Packer, who signed up the world's greatest players and set up a parallel universe of cricket.

Set in an era when moustaches were big and shirts tight, it's a high-stakes, fast-moving story of money and power, elite sportsmen, courtroom drama and a broadcasting revolution.

It is also, at its heart, a tale of love for the game.
