Format: Hardcover
This really is a book for every cricket lover. If the idea of festival cricket transports you back to a time when players and spectators alike looked forward to a special time in the season, then this is for you.

It's enhanced by eye-witness accounts of former players and is complemented by those who are still associated with the clubs, so if you are looking for cricketing nostalgia you are in the right place.

I wasn't disappointed.
Full of wonderful anecdotes and photographs.
A joy for anyone interested in this wonderful game.

An excellent read - brought back many memories of yesteryear; of a time when cricket was cricket and not a commercial venture.
