Steve Smith’s Men: Behind Australian Cricket’s Fall

By Geoff Lemon


He was the top Test batsman in the world, with numbers bettered only by the great Don Bradman – then Australian cricket captain Steve Smith led the Australian team into a cheating scandal that stunned cricket.

How did a team with such hard-edged history reach crisis point under Smith, and what happened on their tour of South Africa to cause such a failure of culture on the world stage?

This is a full and frank narrative of Smith’s captaincy, David Warner’s influence, the dramas that beset Australian cricket, and a blow-by-blow account from Ashes high to Cape Town low, from someone who was there for every ball and every statement. Geoff Lemon writes a dramatic story that exposes how the actions of a few young men shook the very foundations of the Australian cricket establishment.
