Harold Larwood – The authorised biography of the world's fastest bowler

Harold Larwood  The authorised biography of the world's fastest bowler

A fascinating biography of the late Harold Larwood from award-winning author Duncan Hamilton which is authorised by Larwood's family and draws on private documents. Larwood, a fast bowler, was the chief weapon in the England Cricket team's infamous 1932-33 'Bodyline' tour of Australia which earned England a 4-1 series victory but caused a diplomatic row which brough Anglo-Australian relations to the brink of collapse. Larwood was subsequently used as a scapegoat by the MCC but refused to apologise for following his captain's instructions and was never selected for England again. In later life Larwood emigrated to Australia. Published in 2009.
Size: 162mm x 241mm – 388 pages.
