Ever since Mitchell Johnson and his mighty moustache struck fear into the English Ashes team, the cricketing world has been buzzing about fast bowling. Now Rodney Hogg and Jon Anderson get up close with the greatest quicks in cricket history. In seventeen extended interviews - from Frank Tyson to Brett Lee, Sir Wes Hall to Shoaib Akhtar and Jeff Thomson to Allan Donald - Speed Thrills sets out to trace the journeys and plot the psychology behind the most ferocious speedsters to have graced the world stage. About the Author Rodney Hogg was born in Richmond in 1951 and would go on to a controversial career that started at Northcote Cricket Club and ascended to Victorian, South Australian and Australian representation. Rodney Hogg debuted with Northcote as a 16 year-old in 1967/68, but a back injury in 1970 saw quicks such as Froggy Thomson, Max Walker and Alan Hurst go past him into the Victorian side. When he saw his former Northcote teammate Gary Cosier move to Adelaide and break into the Test side, Hogg transferred to Prospect in 1975 and was soon in the South Australian team.
