Publishers Description: From Australias first Test cricket captain Dave Gregory, through the current captain Ricky Ponting, Malcolm Knoxs new book tells the colorful story of how Australian cricket has evolved since its earliest days, how the captain has influenced or stood apart from that evolution, and how the captaincy itself has changed over time. Covering the highs and lows of Australias national game, The Captains chronicles the personalities that have shaped and influenced the Australian team for more than a century. Over the years the Australian captains have provided as much color, intrigue, and scandal to cricket as match-fixing scandals and diet pills ever could. With analysis of key games, people, players, and testmatches, as well as behind the scenes stories and an insightful and thoughtful look at the men who have steered our national teams, The Captains is a beautifully written and never before seen study of the men who have shaped Australian and international cricket.
