Mornings: Tony Greig - Love, War and Cricket by ABC Gold Coast published on 2013/10/28 02:40:33 +0000 Tony Greig strode across the cricket landscape in the 1970s - he was an imposing figure, standing a whopping 6 feet 7. In his huge hands the bat seemed like a paddle pop stick - but he used it like a sword in ferocious duels against fearsome fast bowlers like Lillee and Thomson. Tony was also a handy bowler and a fine fielder and an inspiration to the players he led when he was England's captain. But away from the public glare he was also a family man: A dad, a son and a loyal and generous friend. Tony died last summer aged 66 and the tributes flowed like a crisp cover drive. To get to know the man behind the legend, ABC Gold Coast Mornings presenter Nicole Dyer spoke with his son Mark who's written a family memoir about his dad called 'Love, War and Cricket'.
