Publishers Description: Mark Taylor has never had a year like it. Starting his season late, thanks to a back injury, he re-assumed the captaincy of Australia's cricket team for a long and gruelling campaign that would culminate with the battle for the Ashes. Taylor's brilliant tactical captaincy and pugnacious leadership steered the Australians successfully through fiercely fought Test series against the West Indies, South Africa and England. But as a batsman, Taylor confronted the agonising reality of something feared and faced by many champions before him - The Slump. At times it seemed as if Taylor was being actively persecuted by media pundits and former players alike, as his career was repeatedly written off. But Mark Taylor refused to give up. With courage and dignity he defied his critics, not only by winning three successive series, but with individual displays like his gritty, fighting century at Edgbaston.This is a frank and fascinating account of Mark Taylor's year, taking fans deep inside the workings of an outstanding cricket team. It also exposes as rarely before the story of sport in the raw - of a champion down on luck and form, but refusing to buckle. The sequal to the highly successful Taylor Made, Mark Taylor - A Captain's Year is a riveting read from one of Australia's greatest captains.
