The Don Lane Show: World Series Cricket Classic Catches
Controversially, World Series Cricket (WSC) split the cricket world in late 1977 into establishment and rebel players.
Kerry Packer formed a breakaway competition which had signed 60 of the world's best cricketers, including from South Africa, to participate in a 3-way competition (Australia, the West Indies and the World) playing one-day and traditional 5-day (Supertest) cricket games.
Despite a number of obstacles, WSC grew in popularity using innovations such as drop-in pitches, multiple camera angles and day-night games.
This clip from The Don Lane Show captures 10 classic catches from the second season of WSC in 1978-79.
