ALL IN A DAY'S CRICKET

BRIAN LEVISON    Book Number: 88030    Product format: Paperback

An anthology of outstanding cricket writing with a foreword by Christopher Martin-Jenkins, here is a selection of the very best and most intriguing writing on the sport. This wonderful collection gives voice to the umpires, groundsmen, scorers and spectators, amongst many others. There are contributions from the greatest players such as Sir Ian Botham, Frank Tyson, Ranjitsinhji and W. G. Grace, and the greatest writers including John Arlott, Sir Nevil Cardus and C.L.R. James. Marcus Trescothick writes on his passion for cricket catalogues; Angus Fraser on meeting Nelson Mandela; Phil Tufnell on being shanghaied into getting a hair cut by Mike Gatting, and Rachael Heyhoe Flint on being the first woman to step on to the Lord's Ground as a player. The cover illustration is of Len Hutton batting against Australia during his record innings of 364 in the Fifth Test at the Oval in August 1938. This thoroughly Anglo-Saxon institution covers bangers and bats, recollections of great games, tools of the trade, village cricket, experimental matches, cricket at universities, world tours, tour diaries and of course lunches and teas. 442pp in huge softback, beautifully designed.
