Cricket and All That, Paperback / softback Book

Cricket and All That Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

This is a compelling and irreverent account of a sport that originated in 16th century England and was then gradually fed to the British Empire; nowadays, of course England are regularly outplayed by most of the commonwealth countries.

The author's probing research has uncovered hitherto unrevealed secret scandals amongst the governing bodies of the game and of the complex lives of some of the great heroes of the past and present day.

He reveals the plots and sub-plots that have, it can now be said, livened up the MCC Committee meetings at Lord's over the years. Totally outrageous, written with Henry Blofeld's contagious sense of humour, Cricket and All That shows cricket as a game that has had a profound effect on the very structure of English life.
