Never Say Die Reviews
Speculation about Steve Waugh losing his Test place was rife before the game against England in January 2003. Waugh put such talk to rest with an epic century and here he recounts the background to the game and the dramatic story of how he reached the three figure score in the last over of the day. Naturally, he retained his place.He also goes on to tell the story of the Test series in the West Indies and the subsequent series against Bangladesh with additions from his team-mates, Justin Langer and Adam Gilchrist. There is one thing for certain, at the end of the book there is no doubt that the term 'Never Say Die' and the name Steve Waugh are synonymous.
Of the books i have read by Steve Waugh, this one stands out the most in my opinion. The book starts off talking about THAT hundred in Sydney V England, where he hit Richard Dawson's final ball of the day through the covers for a boundry to bring up the century, an act that has caused most people to forget he also passed 10,000 test runs that day. Waugh was under huge presure for his test place after having had a lean summer and previously being dumped from the Australian One Day side, and he responded with on of the most memorable hundreds the game has seen.Waugh also talks about the two series after that test, againist the West Indies and Bangladesh. Definately worth your time.
simply the best
He writes the way he bats. He thinks the more words he uses the better. The longer it takes, the better. He should be shot for this. Or given out, at the very least.
