    Interest in Chappelli's books is heating up

    Chairman of Cricket Australia David Peever is supposed to be in important meetings in Dubai next week with the heavy hitters from the ICC, but he will be monitoring his phone very closely and may have to excuse himself for a moment or two.

    The cricket powerbrokers’ pow-wow clashes with the LBW Trust annual dinner and Peever has skin in that game.

    Dennis Lillee and singing Zimbabwean activist Henry Olonga are guests of honour at the dinner which has already sold out (600 people). Lillee’s old teammate Ian Chappell decided it is time to divest himself of his private collection of cricket books and magazines and has donated them as an auction item at the event. There are some real classics in there and Peever has placed an early bid. He has told organisers that he is willing to be on a phone link to ensure that nobody outbids him.

    The LBW Trust provides scholarships to economically disadvantaged students in developing cricket-playing countries to help them complete their tertiary education. Every single dollar donated finds its way to the pointy end, unlike some other charities in the news recently. No staff, no administration costs, no champagne.

    If you contact organisers you could make Peever’s life a little uncomfortable and maybe even influence the outcome of ICC deliberations.
