Summary and Info
Michael Bevan is one of Australia's most exciting and skilful batsmen, and a sporting hero to tens of thousands. His uncanny knack of being able to work the ball into even the narrowest of gaps in the field; to see many innings through to their conclusion without losing his wicket; and to accumulate runs with a minimum of fuss, has seen Bevan dubbed the world's best limited-overs batsman. In a career which has taken him to virtually every corner of the cricketing world, Bevan has been an integral member of the Australian one-day team and has been a key factor behind innumerable international wins. He was a part of the country's victorious 1999 World Cup side, and in January 2002, pulled Australia back from an "impossible position" to win against New Zealand in the Tri Nations one-day series with a masterful, calculated innings of 102 runs. This compilation offers a snapshot of more than 40 of Michael's favourite cricket matches and memories, but also covers very personal memories and thoughts about the game, his team mates (including Adam Gilchrist and the Waugh brothers) and various respected opponents (including Sachin Tendulkar and Chris Cairns), and the highlights and lowpoints of a colourful career. The book is published to coincide with the 2002 World Cup One-Day Cricket Series.
