50 Great Moments in Australian Cricket by Dan Liebke
They’re the moments that make up Australian sporting folklore, the iconic events that stand out in Australia’s collective sporting memory long after the match details have become a blur. Remember Shane Warne’s ball of the century? Or Steve Waugh’s century off the last ball? Where were you when John Dyson took his outfield catch? Or when Ellyse Perry celebrated an Ashes double century – twice? How about Adam Gilchrist walking in a World Cup semi-final? Or Dennis Lillee kicking Javed Miandad? Steve Harmison’s wide? Peter Siddle’s birthday hat trick? Underarm? The great cricketing moments are not only unforgettable – they also provide an insight into the timeless allure of Australia’s national sport.
In 50 Great Moments in Australian Cricket, sports journalist and comedy writer Dan Liebke guides us through the events that thrilled, delighted, amused and occasionally shocked fans, and how those moments reveal the secret to the game’s ongoing appeal.
