Meteor over Marlborough – The Gary Bartlett Story
Paperback | English
Gary Bartlett burst onto the international stage like a meteor blasting through the atmosphere.
Blistering speed, brilliant athleticism and movie star looks thrust the shy Blenheim teenager into the limelight and he did not disappoint, stunning Ian Craig’s 1960 Australian team in his debut international series with hostile, skilled fast bowling. In a career tragically cut short by a series of crippling injuries, he put 42 first-class batsmen in hospital, all victims of the lightening speed generated from a short rhythmical run.
