Changing Pace: A Memoir by Sir Richard Hadlee


Sir Richard Hadlee is indisputably New Zealand cricket’s greatest-ever fast bowler and one of the finest all-rounders the sport has ever seen. Even now — almost 20 years after his retirement from international cricket — he remains totally committed and passionate about the game which brought him worldwide fame.
Following on from his best-selling biography Rhythm and Swing, this memoir recounts the last few years of Sir Richard Hadlee’s cricketing career before describing the tumultuous period in his life that followed his retirement. He describes the way in which his life, once so successfil and full of high achievement, was suddenly shattered as he experienced a debilitating heart attack that led to major surgery, and shortly afterwards his marriage of twenty-two years came to an end.
He then describes how, with the help of the woman who was t become his new wife, Dianne, he picked up the pieces and created a new life, first as a tricket ambassador and commentator, and then as the chairman of selectors for New Zealand Cricket. If he had hoped that at that point his life might become smoother sailing he soon found that being a cricket selector brought with it fresh challenges and exposed him to close scrutiny and criticism from the media.
This book reveals the thinking behind the selectors’ decisions during his tenure, the steady improvement in the national team over that time and the controversial events of the 2003 Cricket World Cup in South Africa, as well as describing the often personal criticism levelled at Sir Richard by some writers.
