From the moment he first stepped onto a test pitch, cricket fans around the world were dazzled by Doug Walters’ red-blooded strokes, his immaculate timing and his great enjoyment of the game. But they also loved him because he refused to be a star. He drank, he smoked, he loved a punt. Here, Doug Walters, the man many regard to be one of Australia’s greatest batsmen ever, talks frankly to Ashley Mallett about cricket and cricketers past and present. This is his story.
