Billy Murdoch Cricketing Colossus by Richard Cashman & Ric Sissons

Billy Murdoch was the captain of the Australian Test team between 1880 and 1890 and the first player to reach of Test double century and first-class triple century. The forward by David Frith explained, ‘Billy Murdoch had a sharp mind and ready wit, useful qualities both for a lawyer and a cricket captain.
