Tony Greig

by Joyce Greig, Tony Greig Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download Tony Greig books, Tony Greig was a fearless cricketer, a born entertainer, a stalwart friend and a loving son and father. His death in December 2012 was met with an outpouring of grief from family, friends, colleagues and fans. In this wonderful memoir, Tony's life is recounted by two of those who knew him best - his mother, Joycie, and his eldest son, Mark. Tony's story began in his beloved South Africa when Joycie embarked on an extraordinary war-time love affair with a man not her husband, Sandy Greig. From schoolboy cricketing prodigy, to his early days playing for English country side Sussex, Tony travelled the world meeting an array of cricket greats. He was eventually made captain of England, but then was removed from the job when he controversially threw in his lot with Kerry Packer and his World Series Cricket in 1977. Together, Tony and Packer changed the game forever and formed a friendship that lasted 28 years until Packer's death in 2005. With Packer's offer of a 'job for life', Tony joined the Nine Network as a commentator and settled his family in Australia. From behind the mic, Tony became part of the fabric of the Australian summer. His knowledge of the game, his respect for players from all countries, but particularly for those from the Subcontinent, his humour and above all his passion for cricket made him one of the game's best loved and best known figures. This rich and fascinating life has been retold with warmth and love, giving us an unforgettable portrait of a great man.

Tony Greig

by David Tossell, Tony Greig Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download Tony Greig books, Tony Greig is one of most colourful figures in English cricket history. As a player he stirred up drama and excitement whenever he stepped on the field and as national team captain he was accused of 'betrayal' after taking a leading role in the formation of Kerry Packer's World Series Cricket. David Tossell's biography uses extensive research and multiple interviews - including with Greig himself - to examine whether cricket history has been fair to one of England's most successful all-rounders and if his achievements on the field are condemned to be forever overshadowed by off-field controversy.

If Not Me Who

by Andrew Murtagh, If Not Me Who Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download If Not Me Who books, In March 1977, England cricket captain Tony Greig was arguably the most famous and popular sportsman in the country, and the best all-rounder in world cricket. He had recently led England to a famous series victory in India, her first successful campaign on the subcontinent since the Second World War. Then he had conjured a doughty performance from his travel-weary troops in the dramatic, one-off Centenary Test in Melbourne, narrowly losing by 45 runs. Within weeks, though, his reputation was in tatters. He was branded a traitor and mercenary, stripped of the England captaincy and excluded from the national side. He was also relieved of the Sussex captaincy and banned from first-class cricket for eight weeks. His involvement in the controversial 'Packer Revolution' had caused his fall from grace. Soon afterwards, he left England for good for a commentary career in Australia. At 6ft 7in, Greig was a giant of the game both figuratively and literally. His life story is every bit as fascinating as the controversy that engulfed him.
