Jeff Thomson talks about his life before, during and after he played Test cricket for Australia.

‘I’d just lope in and go whang.’ This is how Thommo, the fastest bowler of all time, explains his bowling. He was feared by batsmen all around the world. This is Thommo’s story as told to his former Test team mate Ashley Mallet. He gives his view on his team mates and opponents, and on cricket when he played and cricket today.

In Thommo’s own words: ‘I enjoy hitting a batsman more than getting him out. I like to see blood on the pitch’.
