One of the 50 best mathematical books in The Times in May 1977, the cricket world woke up to the discovery that a thirty-nine-year-old Sydney businessman named Kerry Packer had signed 35 international players for his World Seriestelevision. The Cricket War is the final calculation of the division that changed the game in the field and on the screen.
In helmets, under the spotlight, with white balls and colorful clothes, the outlawed armies of Ian Chapel, Tony Greig and Clive Lloyd fought a daily survival battle. In boardrooms and courtrooms Packer fought and cricket referees fought a bitter war of nerves. The Cricket War presents a radical account of high-end sporting life and offers a unique insight into the motives and methods of the man who became Australia's richest man and remained until the day of his death.
It was the end of cricket as we know it - and the beginning of cricket as we know it. Gideon Hay has published more than thirty books, more than twenty books on cricket. This version of The Cricket War, Haydon's first book on cricket originally published in 1993, was updated with new images and a new introduction by the author..
