Video - Jeff Thomson's Career Highlights

Watch as Jeff Thomson recalls some of the highlights of his career as an Australian fast bowler in the 1970s and 1980s.

The speedster, who formed a devastating partnership with Dennis Lillee, says he enjoyed playing in Ashes series, and as he puts it, 'doing alright in those', as well as touring the West Indies.

However, most of all, he remembers being part of an era in which he played with and against some of the best players ever to have taken to the field.

Thomson, who played 51 Tests and 50 One-Day Internationals for Australia and also represented Middlesex, Queensland and New South Wales, was talking to us at a 'Battle Of The Ashes' event hosted by D & G Partners in London earlier this year.

Thomson took 100 Test wickets against England at an average of 24.18.
