From the moment he first stepped onto a test pitch, cricket fans around the world were dazzled by Doug Walters' red-blooded strokes, his immaculate timing and his great enjoyment of the game. But they also loved him because he refused to be a star. He drank, he smoked, he loved a punt. The boy from Dungog was one of us.

In One of a Kind , the man many regard to be one of Australia's greatest batsmen ever, talks frankly with Ashley Mallett about his years in cricket, his successes and his slumps. He doesn't hold back on his thoughts about the game's administration, the pampering of modern day players and selection decisions. And he makes some bold predictions about the future of the game.

Doug Walters thrilled the nation with his batting. This is his story.
