Description

Debuting for South Africa in 1970, Barry Richards' run-scoring, technique and audacious, extravagant strokeplay took the breath away. A glittering international career beckoned. However, the apartheid storm burst, and Richards had played his first and last Test series. Frustration, tragedy and controversy beset the genius lost to Test cricket. 

About the author

Andrew Murtagh's first book, A Remarkable Man: The Story of George Chesterton, was short-listed for the MCC Cricket Society Book of the Year - for which award Touched by Greatness, his biography of Tom Graveney, was long-listed. All-rounder Andrew played for Hampshire in the 1970s, and subsequently became an English teacher at Malvern College.
