They re the moments that make up Australian sporting folklore, the iconic events that stand out in Australia s collective sporting memory long after the match details have become a blur. Remember Shane Warne s ball of the century? Or Steve Waugh s century off the last ball? Where were you when John Dyson took his outfield catch? Or when Ellyse Perry celebrated an Ashes double century - twice? How about Adam Gilchrist walking in a World Cup semi-final? Or Dennis Lillee kicking Javed Miandad? Steve Harmison s wide? Peter Siddle s birthday hat trick? Underarm? The great cricketing moments are not only unforgettable they also provide an insight into the timeless allure of Australia s national sport. In 50 Great Moments in Australian Cricket, sports journalist and comedy writer Dan Liebke guides us through the events that thrilled, delighted, amused and occasionally shocked fans, and how those moments reveal the secret to the game s ongoing appeal. ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Dan Liebke is a comedy writer and former Nathan Hauritz impersonator. He was a regular contributor for MAD Magazine in Australia for two decades before coming to his senses and turning his comic focus to cricket. In addition to a social media presence on Twitter (@liebcricket), Dan has also contributed articles making fun of cricket and cricketers to the ABC Cricket Guide magazine as well as websites such as Cricket365, The Roar, The Guardian, FirstPost and Greenfield Post. He also co-hosts both the Can' t Bowl, Can' t Throw and Ridiculous Ashes cricket podcasts. His book, The Instant Cricket Library, a comic anthology of fake excerpts from imaginary, unpublished and other hard-to-find cricket books was published in 2018 by the Slattery Media Group. His books The 50 Greatest Matches in Australian Cricket and The 50 Greatest Australian Cricketers were published by Affirm Press. 50 Great Moments in Australian Cricket is his fourth book. Dan is a genuine all-rounder, equally inept with both bat and ball, and he steadfastly believes that cricket is the funniest, and hence best, sport that humanity has ever invented.
