Jardine Justified

£29.99

Product description

Original cloth binding with red titling, xx, 239pp. 16 b&w photographic plates (one loose). Ex Boots library with Boots form insert / no stamps. Foreword by Jardine.

The truth about Bodyline, also known as fast leg theory bowling, which was a cricketing tactic devised by the English cricket team for their 1932–33 Ashes tour of Australia, specifically to combat the extraordinary batting skill of Australia's Don Bradman. A bodyline delivery was one where the cricket ball was bowled towards the body of the batsman on the line of the leg stump, in the hope of creating leg-side deflections that could be caught by one of several fielders in the quadrant of the field behind square leg. This was considered by many to be intimidatory and physically threatening, to the point of being unfair in a game once supposed to have gentlemanly traditions, although commercialisation of the game had subsequently tended to elevate the principle of "win at all costs" above traditional ideals of sportsmanship.
