A great story about Ian Chappell:

South Australia were playing at the Gabba against Queensland once. As we were walking out onto the field, Chappelli brushed past one of our opening bowlers, Andrew Sincock, who was blow-drying his hair in front of the mirror near the dressing-room door. Chappelli sidled up to me and said:

“Mate, I want you to open the bowling. Come into the wind after Fang’s [Wayne Prior] first over.”


“No bastard who blow-dries his hair just as we are about to take the field is going to open the bowling in any team I lead.”
