The country house cricketer

£10.99

Product description

There is no game quite like cricket. Its formats range from a couple of hours to five days, and it’s played everywhere from the car parks of Beirut to the lawns of Blenheim Palace. Last season, the author chose the latter genus of venues, becoming a peripatetic cricketer, a wandering wicketkeeper as he played at twelve beautiful, iconic and important country houses from Nottinghamshire to Sussex, with the sole excuse of writing a book. The Country House Cricketer is that book, part history of cricket, part history of the houses and their occupants, part story of my season, part idle summer’s musing. But for all the history, cricket is first and foremost about the people.
