"As captain of the Australian Test team from 1999 to 2004, Steve Waugh turned a successful side into a dominant force that in many cricket watchers' view ranks with Sir Donald Bradman's 1948 "Invincible's" and the West Indian teams of the 1980s as one of the best teams of all time. Waugh is also noted for having departed from the sometimes ockerish traditions of Australian cricket, encouraging his players to learn about the cultures of the countries they played in and helping raise funds for Indian children affected by leprosy. -- rear fold over blurb.
