Seller: foulweatherjack (2.480) 100%, Location: Birmingham, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 223889681243 Official A4 size document of the Australian Cricket Team 1975 of their World Cup tour to Canada and the United Kingdom. Signed with genuine/original autographs of all the team members. Usual filing folds. Quite RARE. Following the 1975 Cricket World Cup, the Australian cricket team remained in England in the 1975 season to play a four-match Test series against England. For England, the principal resistance came from veteran opening batsman John Edrich and David Steele, who received a maiden international cap after a decade of county cricket for Northants and whose silver-haired, bespectacled appearance led the press to dub him "the bank clerk who went to war". Steele went on to be named the BBC Sports Personality of the Year 1975, the first cricketer to win the accolade since Jim Laker in 1956. Nonetheless, in the absence of Geoffrey Boycott, the batting was again broadly unable to withstand the pace-bowling partnership of Dennis Lillee and Jeff Thomson, with swing bowler Max Walker providing admirable support; the trio shared 51 wickets in the four Tests. The tour was Ian Chappell's last as captain; he met with considerable success with the bat, compiling Australia's highest aggregate, but announced his retirement from the captaincy following the final Test. Australia won the series 1–0 with three matches drawn. Australia therefore retained The Ashes. Condition: Used
