Summary
The Last Invincible is the first major biography of Australian cricketer Neil Harvey, the last living member of Donald Bradman's 1948 Invincibles. Neil Harvey was one of Australia's greatest left-handed batsmen and a prolific run scorer. He was the youngest member of Bradman's famous team, the Invincibles, which toured England in 1948 and remained undefeated in their 34 matches. Representing Australia, Harvey's stunning test career spans from his moment as the youngest Australian test cricketer to score a century, to vice-captain of the Australian team from 1957 until his retirement. Harvey played 79 Tests for Australia, making more than 6000 runs and 21 centuries. Bowlers rarely found a way of disrupting his concentration or curbing his attack. Harvey has been inducted into the Australian and ICC Cricket Hall of Fame, named in the Australian Test Team of the 20th Century and awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia. Now, for the first time, there is a full-length biography to capture the career and life behind this living legend. In The Last Invincible, biographer and former Australian test cricketer Ashley Mallett draws not only on Harvey's own recollections but those of Australian and international cricketers, commentators and officials to bring to life his remarkable story
