Intimidation. Cunning. Contempt. The greatest pace bowlers have a vast arsenal at their disposal. Australian quicks have perfected the art of re-arranging batsmens ribcages and life-priorities. Death stares and old-fashion lip are used in combination with explosive pace, tactical guile and the ability to make a cricket ball do unprecedentedly vicious things. The Quicks profiles the most successful, frighteningly-fast and charismatic Australian bowlers to ever terrorise the Poms… and every other cricketing nation. Author Robert Drane tells the stories of the men who have captivated the Australian sporting public, from Lillee and Thomson, to McGrath, Johnson and the modern menace of Starc, Cummins and Hazlewood.
