Fred Trueman and all that

Fred Trueman liked to speak his mind, irrespective of the situation and the person at the other end.

Bill Lawry recounted what Trueman had to say when he had deceived Lawry with a fine delivery.

"It bloody well swung out, cut back off the track and you weren't good enough to hit it. You shouldn't be out there."

Talk about mental disintegration!
