Basil D'Oliveira – Cricket and Conspiracy: The Untold Story

Basil D'Oliveira  Cricket and Conspiracy: The Untold Story

Winner of the William Hill Sports Book of the Year award in 2004, this title is a fascinating biography of the late Basil D'Oliveira, a South African cricketer who was barred from top level cricket in his homeland due to his race and duly emigrated to England who he later represented on the international stage. In 1968, D'Oliveira (affectionately known as 'Dolly'), was at the centre of controversy as his selection for the England team led to the cancellation of a tour of South Africa, an incident which influenced the turn of international opinion against the apartheid regime in his homeland. This reprint published in 2011.
Size: 127mm x 198mm – 274 pages.
