Lillee & Thommo is the previously untold story of the combined devastating dominance of bowlers Jeff Thompson & Dennis Lillee. During the heyday of Australian cricket, the pair were unstoppable and feared by batsmen everywhere. In the years between 29 December, 1972 and 18 June, 1983 Lillee and Thommo paired up in twenty-six Test matches, five World Series Cricket Supertests and thirty-one One-Day Internationals. At the zenith of their explosive destruction in England during the summer of 1974-5, they combined to take a total of fifty-seven wickets in the six Tests. There was cause for celebration, indeed genuine relief, for batsmen the world over when their 'reign of terror' ended.
