Product description

Cricket has consistently inspired a wealth of literature. This collection assembles over seven decades worth of cricket writing. The contributions include: Geoffrey Moorhouse's reflection on a century of Test cricket between England and Australia; C.L.R. James's study of George Headley; and J.B. Priestley's thoughts on the Yorkshire and England opener, Herbert Sutcliffe. To disprove the notion that only those who can't play cricket write about it, Mark Nicholas offers a skipper's view of Malcolm Marshall's talents, Australian Test batsman Paul Sheahan reflects on "The Grand Old Game", and Mike Brearley recaptures his feelings on facing the cannonballs of Jeff Thomson.;The editor, David Rayvern Allen, was awarded the Cricket Society Literature Award for his authorized biography of John Arlott.
