What's the story with Max Walker and Chappelli?
Not exactly sure; Chappell has only really talked about it in Roland Fishman's 'Calypso Cricket' afaik. Just seemed to imply that Walker was always a cheapskate and not a generous person and he gave up hosting the Saturday edition of Wide World Of Sports on Ch 9 when he replaced Mike Gibson (whom he always got along well with).

I have used only players whose birth initials make an alliteration, hence no Colin Cowdrey or Gordon Greenidge.

My mate's dad who died a couple of years ago at 102 was adamant until his dying day that Bradman was no innocent in the Hodgett's affair and that if it was anyone but him he would have wound up in Yatala.
