Dennis Lillee and the Aluminum bat issue

Dennis Lillee came out to bat with an aluminium bat, a first in test cricket.

English skipper Mike Brearley complained that the bat will damage the ball. The umpires were unimpresed, sides with Brearley and eventually banned its use.

Lillee is disgusted and throws his bat in a rage.
