Summary
The 2017-18 summer marks the 40th anniversary of one of Australia's greatest social revolutions - World Series Cricket, an event that changed professional sport forever. Suddenly, the 'gentleman's game' had four 'outlaw' teams playing a dazzling brand of the game under spotlights, wearing crash helmets, using white balls and wearing coloured clothing. The TVs were full of catchy jingles and the crowds came in droves. But the real revolution was that the world's most elite cricketers were at last earning enough to quit their day jobs and go truly 'professional'. Cricket Outlaws celebrates Packer's Revolution four decades later and features 40+ exclusive reflections written by WSC's greatest stars - Dennis Lillee, Viv Richards, Ian Chappell, Richard Hadlee, Michael Holding and more (plus the key 'players' behind the scenes), many of them speaking publically on WSC for the first time
