Project Description

MATTHEW HAYDEN

“I relished that performance element, whether it was as a batsman, fielder or bowler and clearly remember the day I made one of my hundreds at the Boxing Day test in Melbourne when Ritchie Benaud, then commentating said, “Matthew Hayden, take a bow!’. And I did! Right in front of 30,000 fans in Bay 13!”
