Simmo: Cricket Then and Now
In Simmo: Cricket Then and Now, Bob fondly recalls many wonderful characters — such as Keith Miller, Richie Benaud, Bill Lawry, Wes Hall, Merv Hughes, Allan Border and Steve Waugh - and offers strong opinions on some of the major issues confronting cricket, including illegal-action bowlers, the state of one-day cricket, umpiring standards and the future of today's Australian team. He also analyses why the quality of pace bowling and catching has declined in the past decade, while paying hearty tributes to 21st-century champions such as Shane Warne, Ricky Ponting, and Andrew Flintoff.
Simmo: Cricket Than and Now is a timely and fascinating study of cricket over the past 50 years, and a revealing portrait of one of the game's finest players and most enduring personalities.
