    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".
