Hansie Cronje captained the SA team for six years and played in 68 Test Matches. Statistically he remains South Africa's greatest cricket captain ever. His global popularity stemmed from his bright and boyish approach to life, a man with the common touch but a ruthless dedication to excellence. His well-known spirituality added to the legend - and made his controversial involvement with the Indian gambling Mafia even more incredible. Accused of match-fixing and other irregularities, Hansie made a dramatic confession to the South African Commission of Inquiry, watched live by a global TV audience. He was banned for life from any involvement in cricket by the United Cricket Board of South Africa. When, two years later, he died in a plane crash, he was still picking up the pieces of his life, faith and future.
A journalist by profession, Garth King has been senior editor on the South African edition of Reader’s Digest, and has managed the publications for the Robben Island Museum. He is now writes freelance and lives near Cape Town.
