Cricket has long been treasured as the most literary of sports, but that is only a fraction of the story. This unrivalled collection, pieced together over the past 15 years, reveals the game not only for its intelligence and incisive writing but also for its wit, controversy, and plain-speaking. The greatest players, the most colourful characters, and the most famous conflicts are all brought to life in a book which provides an instant and engrossing flavour of crickets journey through the last 100 years. There has never been a history quite like it. It contains classic quotations from Cricket legends, as well rising new stars of the game injecting arrogance and spark to the traditional gentleman's sport. Now fully updated in 2006 it comes with an edition containing 16 new pages of hilarious quotes.
