The Summer Game is a fascinating history of Australia in international cricket between 1949 and 1971.
It begins with the departure of one epoch-making Australian Captain, Bradman, at the zenith of the Test match; it ends with the appointment of another, Ian Chappell, in the summer of the inaugural one-day international.
The Summer Game is about people and period. Haigh evokes the era's cricketing triumphs and failures, its characters and its controversies, and tells the stories of some of our greatest cricketers: Richie Benaud, Keith Miller, Ray Lindwall, Neil Harvey, Bob Simpson, Bill Lawry and Alan Davidson.
In Haigh's hands, cricket also becomes a prism through which to view a changing Australia in the two decades after the war.
