Haigh on Armstrong

Despite all the heroics and the controversies, as the history-ignorant cricketing public outnumbered the other type, hWarwick Armstrong slipped into relative obscurity.
According to his biographer Gideon Haigh, Armstrong's chief legacy was in his uncompromising conduct. He was a winner at all costs – even to his reputation.
And that, perhaps, contributed to him not being remembered as well as some of his contemporaries.

All that changed as Haigh's book was published in 2001.
Haigh, much like he did to Iverson, reinstated Armstrong's image in the minds of the cricket aficionados.
