Coaching Youth Cricket
Eddie Gilbert dismissed Don Bradman for a duck after a spell of bowling the legendary champion batsman rated as the fastest he had ever faced. In fact, Eddie Gilbert was so fast, he knocked the bat from Bradman’s hands. Gilbert outdone Bradman on two further occasions, took on Jardine during the infamous Bodyline tour, vied for test selection and was eventually branded a “chucker” by a system dominated by “white men” who could not tolerate the thought of a “black fella” being a superior cricketer. Much has been spoken and written about Eddie Gilbert since 1931, much of it wrong. Based on seven years of meticulous research, this book tells the True Story of Eddie Gilbert and is a MUST HAVE for all cricket history buffs.

Australia boasted the most prolific scorer of runs the game had ever seen: young Don Bradman, who had punished England's bowlers mercilessly during the 1930 tour. He had to be stopped. Jardine had the weapon and the strategy. The leg-side bouncer onslaught inflicted on Bradman and other Australian batsmen in 1932-33 by Larwood and Bill Voce, with a ring of fieldsmen waiting for catches, caused outrage at the highest level of government. Bodyline, as this infamous technique came to be known, was repugnant to the majority of cricket-lovers, and ultimately outlawed. In this work, David Frith has provided a history replete with anecdote on a sporting scandal that, 70 years on, continues to inspire controversy.
