Description

Tony Greig is one of most colourful figures in English cricket history. On the field, the charismatic South African always stirred up excitement; as England captain he led the sport into crisis by recruiting for Kerry Packer’s World Series Cricket. But is cricket history’s view of the competitive all-rounder tainted by off-field controversies?
