About the book:
Ali Bacher has commanded a place at the coalface of sport in South Africa during its most turbulent and historic period. His exceptional contribution is reflected in this biography with pace and passion, an important chronicle of momentous events in the contemporary history of the new South Africa. Bacher's story is essentially about the roles he played in cricket, but this new, updated edition reveals his unexpected decision to step into the minefield of South African rugby at the height of the bitter controversy that raged in its corridors of power. It contains several previously unpublished disclosures.
