Reading Jason Gillespie's 'autobiography' at the moment. Pretty prosaic, reads more like a tour diary - "played NSW, took 2/42, had a niggle in my back, needed a jab", is pretty much the gist of it. He seems to have generally avoided politics in his career, or at least in this account and his comments on other teams are what you'd expect - "good player, bit hard to find for a drink after the game". He does throw in a couple pf interesting lines that deviate from the team public lines at the time, but they're usually one off lines that only tantalize - he reckons a fair chunk of the dressing room were by the end of Taylor's batting slump unimpressed that he had kept his place and that Steve Waugh resumed bowling at the end of his career in a bid to stave of being axed, and was unsure whether the selectors had told him to do so and said he doubted whether it had been a good move for the team.
Does highlight how many injury concerns the poor bloke had and how often he played with niggles - something that given most autobiogs are of non-fast bowlers i hadn't appreciated enough probably. Haven't got up to 2005 yet, should be some interesting stuff there.
