Product Description

Review

I once said I never met a cricketer I didn't like and this book goes some way to explaining why. A wonderful celebration of the best of games - Sir Michael Parkinson

Funny, tender, absorbing and full of delightful surprises; this is as lovely a book about the game of cricket as you could wish to read - Michael Simkins

A seductive blend of action and reflection, of humour and anecdotage, all underscored by the eternal truth that the memory of a sweetly timed cover drive transcends any amount of flannelled foolishness --David Kynaston

No tail-enders in this XI. Every essay lyrically evokes the still paradise of summer, the beauty of cricket and why the game matters so much to those of us who can't possibly imagine life without it - Duncan Hamilton

Most cricket authors are better at cricket than writing. Reversing this principle is a revelation --Simon Barnes

The Authors' search for the grail should fascinate and amuse anyone with a love for the game - Daily Telegraph

A gem of diverse, entertaining prose from a variety of exceptional wordsmiths --All Out Cricket

Book Description

An insightful examination of modern cricket by a historic team made up of cricket-obsessed writers. With a foreword by Sebastian Faulks.

A well collected account of a team's progress throughout a storm soaked summer. It shows the individual care and love disassociated people have for a sport and how although talented God's sporting gifts have to take a back seat sometimes when dealing with the rough and tumble of life.

I am fascinated by the sport and trying to figure out the rules and terminology. How does it fit with the English character? I love all of Dan Stevens writing and read it whenever I can
