In what was supposed to be Ian Chappell's final season he led South Australia to an improbable, thrilling and wildly controversial win in the Sheffield Shield. His leadership of a side of veterans and kids inspired brilliant cricket. It also generated such loyalty that the players staged a mutiny against the establishment in protest at the way their captain was treated. Their action almost cost them the coveted trophy and their careers.
Through interviews with the key players from all states, this book examines the context of the times, the myriad of personalities and the insights of one of the greatest leaders the game has ever known. A time when every game mattered.
