The Hansie Cronje Story

Publisher: Monarch Books

His global popularity stemmed from his bright and boyish approach to life, a man with the common touch but a ruthless dedication to excellence.

His Christian spirituality added to the legend - and made his controversial involvement with the Indian gambling mafia even more incredible.

Accused of match-fixing and other irregularities, Hansie made a dramatic confession to the South African Commission of Inquiry, watched live by a global TV audience.

He was banned for life from any involvement in cricket by the United Cricket Board of South Africa. When, two years later, he died in a plane crash, he was still picking up the pieces of his life, faith and future.
