It's Not Cricket, Paperback Book

It's Not Cricket Paperback


This is a definitive history of the seedy underside of cricket.

From the 18th-century crowd violence to the obsessive will to win of W.G.

Grace; from the bodyline to throwing; from sledging to the match-fixing allegations brought against a host of Test players, culminating in Hansie Cronje's lifetime ban from the game, Simon Rae's work is a revelatory look at a game that was always supposed to be the yardstick of all that was true, honest, pure and of good repute.
