Description

Ali Bacher has been described at the best-known cricket official in the world and, as such, has attracted as much admiration as criticism. He is considered to be the most influential personality in the history of South African cricket. It is a story that is told with pace and is not short on colour. It includes the views of people most relevant to the issues being covered, by way of example - those ANC officials who viewed Ali Bacher as an enemy, agreed to engage him in clandestine meetings and then embraced him as a comrade; insiders in and around SA cricket who have dealt with him on subjects ranging from the masterminding of Rebel cricket tours in the 1980s to dealing with the Match Fixing scandal of the 1990s; and what went into organising the biggest Cricket World Cup of all in South Africa in Feb-March 2003. It is a story concerning dealings with politicians and rebel cricketers and cricket officials and players of all persuasions and temperament. This title will have appeal throughout the cricket-playing world, which now incorporates some 85 countries.show more
