Format: Hardcover
One of the best and funniest books about the game I have ever read. Though now over 30 years old it perfectly captures the spirit and practice of English village cricket.

That it is still such a good description of the grass roots game where finishing the game at opening time is more important than the result probably expalains why the nationl side does not win very often...... much....
