A glorious expose of the joy and despair of village cricket,
By A Customer
This review is from: Rain Men: Madness of Cricket (Paperback)
Berkmann's book is a worryingly accurate portrayal of life in a village cricket team. He describes the atmosphere of all ameteur teams with a high degree of observation and wit. The author's skill lays in his ability to portray perfectly the highs and lows of individual and team performances. Any body who has played any sort of cricket will instantly identify with the characters depicted. A must read for any player of the game.
