Australian Cricket Scandals is a crafted collection of Ken Piesse's previously published writings on the ball tampering, bets, bribes and blow ups that have rocked the world of cricket. All the furores, all the scandal: Black Saturday in Cape Town when Steve Smith and David Warner cheated; Shane Warne and the throwing of a Test match; World Series walk-outs; Greg Chappell's five minutes of infamy; Dennis Lillee infamous bet against Australia; A captain flattens his chairman of selectors in a 20-minute Sydney brawl; The Ian Meckiff conspiracy; The mysterious non-selections of Dean Jones and Brad Hodge; Don Bradman on strike and much, much more. Most recently it was Sandpaper Saturday in Cape Town in the autumn of 2018, our adventure in paradise undermined by just one stunning misjudgment, still reverberating around the cricketing world -- a bigger scandal than the underarm, match fi xing, even Warnie popping the wrong pills. The booing and jeering for Australia's captain Steve Smith at Newlands as he walked in and out was loud and prolonged. It came from every direction, not only those in the cheap seats. By so flagrantly abusing the spirit of cricket, Smith and the others discredited themselves, the game and 450 other Australian Test players who'd so proudly worn the baggy green cap.

Sport can bring out the best in us... and the worst. The high-pressure world of competitive sport has been shaken over the years by a series of major scandals. Involving drugs, sex, violence, money or pure and simple cheating, these incidents have ruined reputations, fuelled suspicions and shocked loyal supporters. Highlighting some of the most memorable cases from around the world, Norman Ferguson explores both recent and historic instances of dishonesty, betrayal and outrageous unsporting behaviour. Over 35 scandals, including: • How cancer-survivor Lance Armstrong deceived his fans and cheated his way to seven Tour de France victories • The World Cup bidding processes that brought the FBI to FIFA’s door • Figure skater Tonya Harding’s sinister plot to break the leg of her rival, Nancy Kerrigan

Behind the spectacle of entertainment, sport is a subject with political issues at every level. These issues range from the social, with divisions created along gender and class lines, to the use of sport to pursue diplomatic and statecraft goals. In addition, some sports are positioned and promoted as national events both in public opinion and in the media. This book seeks to explore some aspects of the notion of power in sport in south Asia and among south Asians abroad. The first two chapters deal with the internal societal dimensions of the politics of sport; the next three relate to the politics inside the sporting world in the subcontinent and its bridge with the broader arena of the society through the media, while the last five relate to the use of sports in statecraft, consensus building and international politics. This book was based on two special issues of the International Journal of the History of Sport.

In sport, the term 'good bloke' doesn't mean what it says. Like 'fun run', it often actually means exactly the opposite. Titus O'Reily, the sports historian Australia neither needs nor deserves, examines why our nation's sportspeople are so readily forgiven for doing terrible things. With ridiculous tales from Australia's chequered sporting history, A Sporting Chance dissects the scandals big and small, the mistakes made in covering them up and the path athletes tread back to redemption. From the Essendon supplements saga and the sandpaper-loving Australian cricket team to whatever it is Nick Kyrgios has done now, Titus reveals the archetypes at the heart of our greatest sporting scandals. There's the corrupt cop who gave us the race that stopped a nation and the boxing champion who refused to train. There's the cashed-up businessmen who bankrupted clubs and the commentators who can't get their foot out of their mouth. And of course there's the good blokes, like Wayne Carey, Matthew Johns and Shane Warne, who it seems we'll forgive for absolutely anything. In his rambling and at times incoherent style, Titus asks the question: are Australians really that forgiving of their sporting heroes? With the rise of social media, women's sport and the drive towards greater equality, are the good blokes of Australia's sporting landscape an endangered species?

From Australia’s first Test cricket captain Dave Gregory, through to the current captain Ricky Ponting, Malcolm Knox’s new book tells the colourful story of how Australian cricket has evolved since it’s earliest days, how the captain has influenced or stood apart from that evolution, and how the captaincy itself has changed over time. Covering the highs and lows of Australia’s national game, The Captains chronicles the personalities that have shaped and influenced the Australian team for over a century. From larrikins to quiet achievers to true gentlemen of the game; over the years the Australian captains have provided as much colour, intrigue and scandal to cricket as match-fixing scandals and diet pills ever could. With analysis of key games, people, players and test-matches, as well as behind the scenes stories and an insightful and thoughtful look at the men who have steered our national teams, The Captains is a beautifully written and never before seen study of the men who have shaped Australian and international cricket.

Michael Clarke

Michael Clarke

It's the incredible story of a remarkable Australian you never really knew. Until now.

Author: Michael Clarke

Publisher: Macmillan Publishers Aus.

ISBN: 9781925483819

Category: Biography & Autobiography

View: 187

He was the greatest batsman of his generation and, as captain, possessed the sharpest tactical mind in the game. Bursting onto the scene in 2004 with a Test century on debut, Michael Clarke was Australian cricket's golden boy. And the batting prodigy they nicknamed 'Pup' certainly fulfilled his destiny in a stellar 11-year international career of 115 Tests, 8643 runs and 28 centuries. Clarke's rollercoaster four-year reign as Test captain was marked as much by bravery as brilliance - a 5-0 whitewash of England in 2013-14, the 2015 World Cup triumph, and a ten-hour unbeaten 161, batting with a broken shoulder to lead Australia back to the #1 world ranking in 2014. Yet Michael Clarke also sparked fiercer debate than any other Australian sports star. For a decade his personal life, career fortunes and controversies - real or imagined - were splashed across front pages and scrutinised. Was he simply a hard-working, western suburbs kid living every Aussie boy's dream? Or a 21st century cricketer mired in all the trappings of celebrity? In the echo chamber of social media, the truth about Michael Clarke was warped, then lost. Clarke's enigma deepened but he kept his mouth shut and his dignity intact, knowing the chance to tell his extraordinary story would finally come. And now it has. My Story is the real Michael Clarke, standing up and speaking out for the first time. Bucking the conventions of traditional biography to go hard at the big issues, Clarke speaks fearlessly and poignantly about the scandals, rumours and explosive moments of his life; revealing the amazing truths, private pain and personal triumphs that no one realised. It's the incredible story of a remarkable Australian you never really knew. Until now.

When it comes to sport, Australians are mad. Completely, irrationally insane. It’s the closest thing we have to a culture. From Don Bradman’s singular focus to Steven Bradbury’s heroic not falling over, sport has shaped our sense of self. But how did we get here? Part history, part social commentary and a lot of nonsense, Titus O’Reily, Australia’s least insightful sports writer, explains. Covering Australian Rules, League, Union, soccer, cricket, the Olympics and much more, Titus tackles the big topics, like: · How not to cheat the salary cap · The importance of kicking people in the shins · The many shortcomings of the English Titus takes you through the characters, the pub meetings, the endless acronyms, the corruption and the alarming number of footballers caught urinating in public. Sport is important – gloriously stupid, but important. To understand Australia you must understand its sporting history. With this guide you sort of, kind of, will. 'An indispensable voice for serious fans, who need to be reminded to take sport a little less seriously.' Inside Sport 'An enjoyable romp through our nation’s great and not-so-great sports moments . . . between the laughs lies an insightful study of everything from cricket to Quidditch.' Herald Sun
