Description

The Australian record-holder for highest score in Tests and One Day Internationals, who was plagued by insecurities. InStanding My Ground, Hayden confronts these contradictions head-on. He talks frankly about the forces that shaped his journey. He dissects Australia's tactic of verbal warfare and his own role as a key aggressor. This isn't a predictable ball-by-ball account of a stellar career. Instead, Hayden delivers a characteristically direct assessment of the matches and the people that mattered most. He opens up on umpires, the media, superstitions, teammates and opponents with disarming honesty and humour. Here is the superstar batsman, the surfer, fisherman and chef in a book as bold and powerful as the man himself.
