Asfe
PRIME MINISTER
FOR MEDIA 2 AUGUST 1989
I have sent the following message to Allan Border:
Congratulations on your historic Ashes victory. The
1989 side has performed magnificently as individuals, as
a team and as representatives of Australia.
Your own leadership has been superb. I know of no
Australian sportsman who has fought more courageously
for his country or more richly deserved this ultimate
achievement for an Australian Test captain.
Bob Hawke
