Here is everything from David Steele's remarkable Test summer of 1975 to Brian Lara's awe-inspiring first season with Warwickshire; from the Packer Revolution to Michael Holding kicking down John Parker's stumps during West Indies' ill-tempered 1979 tour of New Zealand; from the day the incongruous clang of Dennis Lillee's aluminium bat first rang out across a cricket field to Essex bowling Surrey out for 14 and 'weak Victorian' Dean Jones being hospitalised after his 210 slog in the 40- heat of Madras. Above all, every story is told in the words of the cricketers, reporters and bystanders who witnessed them. Like Graham Gooch reliving his magnificent triple century against India. Or Lancashire all-rounder David Hughes describing darkness fall over Old Trafford as he plundered 24 off John Mortimore at the end of an astonishing 1971 Gillette Cup semi-final.
