Publishers Description: Mark Edward Waugh was born in 1965 - four minutes after his brother Steve. The tendency to hang back and see how things worked obviously wasnt a one off - he waited five years to join Steve in an Australian Test team. But this was one younger brother who was never going to be content to be cast in his siblings shadow for too long. Once he donned the Baggy Green, Mark proved he was among the worlds most gifted batsmen when he became the first player to score back-to-back Test hundreds, as well as the first to hit three centuries in a World Cup tournament. Aside from his achievements on the pitch, this biography fleshes out the enigmatic picture of Mark created by the media and explores his passion for the track, as well as the sledging, betting scandals and subsequent court hearings, and how he struggled to overcome the tag of being "the forgotten Waugh". It also reveals his thoughts on being dropped from Australias limited overs side - due to modest scoring and the selectors desire to blood new talent - and his fight to be reselected for the 2003 World Cup in South Africa.
