Beyond The Pavilion spans seventy years of social, regional and cultural history through the eyes of one of cricket’ s earliest Test match wayfarers, Barry Knight. As a ten-year-old, Barry saw Don Bradman’ s 1948 ‘ Invincibles’ at Lord’ s. His early days were spent playing street cricket in London’ s East End, captaining his school against Eton College, and later captaining England Schoolboys. At the age of fifteen, he was recruited to play for Essex and went on to become one of England’ s finest all-round cricketers.In this memoir, Barry reflects on his international playing career and his experiences touring India, Pakistan, Australia and New Zealand in the 1960s. He recounts tours with Fred Trueman, Geoff Boycott, Ted Dexter, and Colin Cowdrey and playing against the era’ s best Australian, Indian, Pakistani, and West Indian players. He also shares stories about life in London in the Swinging Sixties and his place in the D’ Oliveira affair, and the anti-apartheid protests.After his retirement, Barry moved to Australia in the 1970s and became Australia’ s first professional cricket coach mentoring and developing three Test match captains: Allan Border, Mark Taylor and Steve Waugh.
