Inscribed on plinth: DENNIS LILLEE. With menacing speed and bounce, Lillee burst onto the international scene when he took 8/29 against a powerful World XI at Perth in 1971. On return from a serious back injury in 1974, his slightly reduced pace was offset by a compelling mix of guile and perserverance and he became a legend of Australian cricket, retiring in 1984 as the highest Test wicket-taker with 355 victims at 23.92. Many regard Lillee as the greatest fast bowler of any era. He was an inaugural inductee into the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame in 1996. Tattersall's [logo]. MCC [logo]. SCULPTOR: LOUIS LAUMEN. A GIFT TO ALL AUSTRALIANS FROM TATTERSALL'S.
