Hall of Fame

Gideon Haigh

1965 -

The indefatigable Haigh has carved an enviable reputation as an independent journalist at a time when staff journalists were losing their jobs as the internet torpedoed the business model of traditional media. After 11 years as a business and feature writer, he went solo in 1995. An elegant writer with an eclectic range of interests, Haigh has written 30 books and contributed to more than 100 publicaions, including The Times of London, The Guardian, The Times of India and The Financial Times. Haigh has been described by The Guardian‘s Richard Williams as “the most gifted cricket essayist of his generation” and his books have won him English Cricket Society awards and Premier’s Awards in three states.
