Australia's current cricketers owe a lot to this week's guest on Lessons Learnt with the Greats, the former captain and champion batsman Ian Chappell. Chappelli was as tough as they come, not only as a no-nonsense batsman but off the field when dealing with the Australian Cricket Board. Chappelli, along with his peers in the 1970s, stood up to the likes of Sir Donald Bradman in fighting for better pay and conditions for the players. He was a key figure in World Series Cricket before returning to the Test team where the players were paid more, paving the way for today's cricketers reaping the rewards for their efforts.

It's a fascinating listen and Chappelli tells stories that I could listen to for days and days. I hope you all enjoy.
