Readers will discover the answers to these questions and learn much more about the noble sport of cricket in this entertaining and enlightening book. Written by a passionate player and cricket-watcher, the book traces the sport from the author's cricketing childhood in England to a seat on the bank at the 2006 match between the Black Caps and the Windies at the Basin Reserve.
