The 2017-18 summer marks the 40th anniversary of one of Australia’s greatest social revolutions – World Series Cricket, an event that changed professional sport forever.

Cricket Outlaws celebrates Parker’s revolution four decades later and features 40 plus reflections written by the worlds greatest cricketers.
