Howzat! Kerry Packer's War is how legendary media mogul Kerry Packer
fought a cricket war by secretly signing up 50 of the world's greatest
players to form a breakaway tournament. Packer took on the Australian
Cricket Board and MCCC in a war over TV rights and threw the cricket
world into turmoil by creating ‘World Series Cricket'. He knew the
players, who had been underpaid for years, were on the point of
rebellion against the cricket authorities. His rebel games clashed
head-on with official test matches, and the war was on. Polishing an
idea by John Cornell, Packer fought a bitter two-year battle against the
cricket establishment doing its best to protect the hundred-year legacy
of pride in the traditional nature of the poorly paid game. The result
changed cricket forever.
