Australian cricket

A lifetime of Waugh stories

The Surfer

Steve Waugh’s autobiography was launched on Sunday and his yarns are already smothering tables throughout the country. In The Australian there are tales of mints, his brother Mark and sledging Brian Lara while in the Sydney Morning Herald he hopes Out of My Control is the best sports book ever written.

Mints are also popular in The Courier-Mail’s report where the waft of marijuana gets a mention following a Sheffield Shield win in the mid-1980s. Cricinfo’s news coverage of the book is here while Waugh’s profile shows his greatness in words and numbers.
