A Last English Summer : by the author of 'The Great Romantic: cricket and the Golden Age of Neville Cardus' Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Combining reportage, anecdote, biography, history and personal recollection, A Last English Summer is an honest and passionate reflection on cricket's past, present and future.

In 2009 the county system looked directionless and obsolete; more than ever the players blessed with central contracts seemed apart from, rather than a part of, the domestic game; the home Ashes series was for the first time only available on pay-TV; and, of course, the juggernaut of Twenty20 threatened to flatten all but the Test form of the game, suggesting it may soon eclipse even that as well.

Duncan Hamilton has preserved this seminal, convulsing season, which in years to come may be seen as a turning point in the history of cricket.

In the process he embarks on a journey - often a deeply personal one - through the history and spirit of the game.
