Lillee and Thomson — a fast-bowling, fire-breathing, batsman-battering combination with no peer, who tore apart England body and soul in the 1974–75 Ashes, then put the might of Clive Lloyd’s West Indies to the sword the next wild summer.

This is their story, seen through the eyes of their teammates — all the way from suburban clubs to the national side — and of their opponents and the umpires.

Ian Brayshaw, a teammate who was at Lillee’s side as he returned from a career-threatening back injury, who knows what it’s like to face Thomson thunderbolts, orchestrates affairs in this in-depth look at a special time in world cricket.

The time when Lillee and Thommo reigned supreme.

Lillee & Thommo is the previously untold story of the combined devastating dominance of bowlers Jeff Thompson & Dennis Lillee. During the heyday of Australian cricket, the pair were unstoppable and feared by batsmen everywhere. In the years between 29 December, 1972 and 18 June, 1983 Lillee and Thommo paired up in twenty-six Test matches, five World Series Cricket Supertests and thirty-one One-Day Internationals. At the zenith of their explosive destruction in England during the summer of 1974-5, they combined to take a total of fifty-seven wickets in the six Tests. There was cause for celebration, indeed genuine relief, for batsmen the world over when their 'reign of terror' ended.

The best of the best, these are the greatest players of the 20th Century playing in the same side. Former Test cricketer and author Ashley Mallett describes the agony and ecstasy in selecting the best Eleven of the past 100 years. From the short list to the final selection, he provides the reason and argument towards achieving the perfectly balanced side. The outcome is a team with great batting depth - nine players who have scored Test Centuries, and specialist batsmen who are courageous, consistent and adaptable. There are one batting all-rounder and two bowling all-rounders. The attack is a potent mix of genuine pace bowling, complemented by two brilliant spinners- one a leg-spinner, the other an off-spinner. This Eleven would beat any combination - anywhere and at anytime.

Cricket Odyssey is a skilfully executed, lovingly constructed, book: a literary celebration of over a century-and-a-half of cricket. It has narrative and character study blended in a dexterously refined, yet readable form. It not only manages to pervade the essential of the essentials of some of cricket’s greatest players — from Dr W G Grace to Steve Waugh; from Sir Don Bradman, Sachin Tendulkar to Rahul Dravid; from Sir Learie Constantine and Sir Gary Sobers to Jacques Kallis; from Ray Lindwall to Wasim Akram; and, from Clarrie Grimmett to Anil Kumble and Muttiah Muralitharan — but, it also brings to life a classy and effulgent cricketing collage. More than a lively, encapsulated grandeur of individual brilliance, or cricketing chemistry, of each player epitomised in its canvas, Cricket Odyssey explores not only the many-resplendent delights of cricket, but it also delineates a deftly woven work of art — of the game’s scientific foundation, art and grammar, and its players’ phenomenal exploits, acts of courage, grandeur, and ‘shortfall.’ A journey through nostalgia, and a living monument to a living philosophy, it is, in sum, a ‘must-read’ and ‘must-keep’ book for all avid cricket fans across the globe.

Thommo was feared by batsmen all around the world. Sri Lankan Sunil Wettimuny recalls facing one of Thommo's balls: ""Never before or since that day did I know fear on the cricket field."" Mike Brearley, the Middlesex captain who led England during the World Series Cricket incursion, said of Thommo: ""Broken marriages, conflicts of loyalty, the problems of everyday life fall away as one faces up to Thomson."" This is Jeff Thomson's story, from the cricket fields of his Sydney schoolboy days to the international matches and beyond, as told to Ashley Mallet by Thommo, his former team mates, and his opponents. Thommo's legendary partnership with Dennis Lillee, a combination known as Lillian Thomson, was one of the most lethal in the history of cricket. As the caption to Paul Rigby's famous cartoon said: ""Ashes to ashes, dust to dustif Thommo don't get ya, Lillee must.""

Greg Chappell was the outstanding Australian batsman of his generation. Though he had an appetite for big scores, it was his calm brow and courtly manner that bowlers found just as disheartening. When he followed his brother Ian into the Australian captaincy, his feat of scoring centuries in each innings of his captaincy debut has been unequalled. After retiring he went into coaching, spending some time with South Australia and working as a consultant at Pakistan’s National Cricket Academy. In 2005 he was appointed coach of the Indian national cricket team on a two-year term—a stint that included a stormy public falling out with the captain, Sourav Ganguly. He has been Head Coach of Cricket Australia’s Centre of Excellence in Brisbane and in 2010 Greg Chappell was made Cricket Australia’s first full-time selector and National Talent Manager—a position of unequalled power. In this book Greg Chappell will reflect upon how things have changed since he grew up playing cricket in his backyard with his brothers Ian and Trevor; how Australia’s fortunes have see-sawed over the years; the great teams and the great players; the scandals and the opportunities. He has been a cricketer, captain, commentator and selector—he has seen it all.
