Description - Bill Lawry: Chasing a century by Bill Lawry

Bill Lawry will always be one of the most iconic figures of Australian cricket. Whether you remember him best as the famously relentless batsman, stonewalling captain, or excitable, beloved commentator - Lawry has been at the heart of the game for almost sixty years.

Bill Lawry: Chasing a Century tells the story of his stellar cricketing career - from his youth in district cricket and his debut in the Australian team in 1961, a year in which he exceeded a staggering 2000 runs in his first tour of England; through the sixty-seven Australian Tests he played as opening batsman and his leadership in the captaincy of the Australian team; to his incontestable reign as one of the original voices of cricket.

Here, tales from colleagues, players, cricket writers and those who listened to his broadcasts every summer, bring Lawry's career to life and remind us of the colossal contribution this left-handed legend has made to Australian cricket.
