Remember that stocky opening batsman with a drooping mustache who used to bat with grey Nichol's bat with a red stripe on it.
who played for Australia , yeah that was David Boon.If AUSTRALIA did very well in the late 70's,80's and early 90's it was due to players like David Boon.His records speak for itself that 'DB' was one of the most successful Aussie batsmen of those days.He formed great a opening pair with other opening batsmen and was instrumental in helping AUSTRALIA to many wins. We remember you MR david what are you doing these days?
