    I know. It just randomly popped up on my recommended list after I watched this. It talks about those 4 Tests Richards played including the infamous 100 in 1 hour between RIchards and Pollock

    More Richards

    I must admit I had not seen too much of his batting. But having watched these I now understand why everyone was in awe. What a beautiful technique..Seems to have all the time in the world.

    7.36 min mark on that 325 video is amazing.

    There's a great story about that 325 in a day he made. Apparently he played and missed early at one from McKenzie and Rod Marsh said loudly to Inverarity at slip "I thought this bloke was supposed to be able to bat".

    After he ended the day by hitting that last ball from Lillee back over his head, Inverarity turned to Marsh and said wtte of "Rod, I think he goes all right".

    Here is Richie Benaud interviewing Alan Knott for 1 hour 45 mins with a ton of footage. There is everything from Sobers bowling his chinaman to Knott in 1968 to a brilliant Wasim Bari catch as Knott rates his contemporaries. And of course there are dozens of dismisals by Knott himself. The quality of film is a bit disappointing but you can't have everything.

    Here is 16 minutes of Imran Khan bowling from 1975 to 1992. The editing is pretty ordinary but the first 2 minutes are worth a look because it shows Imran's medium paced bowling action before it evolved into the bowling action that we are all familiar with. Unbelievable.

    A nice documentary that has Hadlee commentating the extended highlights from his own favorite Test matches and bowling spells. Best footage of Kiwi cricket from the 70s and 80s any where, especially when beating Clive Lloyd's team at home.

    What a bowler.

    Excellent video. First time I had ever heard Alan Knott speak at length, such an intelligent and energetic guy. Some of those catches he took against the Windies in that video are out of this world. Lightning reflexes, almost unmatched in today's game.
