In 1983 Australia toured Sri Lanka for a single Test and David Hookes scored his one and only Test century. This was a man who loved cricket and the Australian cricketing public loved him, but why did he never really make the step up to Test cricket? We talk about highlights from David's career before his untimely death in 2004 - and ponder the intangible quality that marks those who perform at the top level.

Today's game - Australia vs Sri Lanka, April 22nd-26th, 1983
