At the end of the 1953 Australian tour the incomparable Ray Lindwall had captured 158 Test wickets, more than any other genuine fast bowler.  Acclaimed buy many shrewd judges as the greatest ever pace bowler, Lindwall traces his enthralling career from the time when, as a cricket-mad youngster in Sydney, he bowled thunderbolts at a kerosene tin in the street, hoping to impress W. J. O’Reilly on his nightly walk home.
Australia’s shock bowler number one, Lindwall is recognised as one of the brainiest fast-bowlers of all time.”
