South Africa has produced more great cricket all-rounders than any other country, and this book, a first on these remarkable players, is based on records, articles and interviews with living players as well as archival research of early players. Over a hundred years ago, there was Jimmy Sinclair, the first man to score a century and take six wickets in an innings in a test match. More recently was the brilliant era of Eddie Barlow, Tiger Lance, Mike Procter, and Clive Rice, as well as Tony Greig and Basil D'Oliveira, South Africans who played for England. A great tradition was established for the modern era: since re-admission in 1992 there has been Brian McMillan, Shaun Pollock, Lance Klusener and, the greatest of them all, Jacques Kallis. This book is about the 13 men each of whom were worth two or three players in one, worth their place as batsmen or bowlers, adored by the fans, and capable of changing a game with either of their skills. With a readable mix of anecdotes, commentary and statistics, this is the first book about these multitalented heroes of crickets. A very special feature of the book is the inclusion of the careers of four black all-rounders who were unable to play for national teams because of their race.
