Remembering Hookesy/David Hookes F/Hardb/1877082430/S050-E1
Cricket crowds remembered David Hookes fondly; he was always likely to produce a burst of spectacular shot-making that left the fans with a wonderful memory to take home. His style was an invitation: "Better go to the ground today, because it might be the day when 'Hookesy' produces some magic."
Magically, he belted five fours in a row off the England captain Tony Greig in the unforgettable 1977 Centenary Test; once, he scored a century off 34 balls.
After cricket, his media star rose and rose, and was still in its ascendancy when his life was tragically cut short. He would have been humbled by the sincere outpouring of grief and, one headline, "Champion's Gift of Life", a reference to his long-held belief in the merits of organ donation. Countless other people now stand on the threshold of new life, and many more wait with deepening hope. This book is all about David Hookes, his Foundation - and hope.
