About this book
Paperback edition of Hughes' history of cricket, told in typically irreverent fashion. From the award-winning author of "A Lot Of Hard Yakka", it's fully updated to include the story of England's victory against Australia in the 75th Ashes series. '...an enormously jolly book by one of our best cricket writers...' Simon Heffer, "Daily Telegraph"
Cricket defines Englishness like no other national pastime. This title presents the story of the mad characters who inhabit the game, the extraordinary lengths people go to watch and play it, and the tale of a national obsession.
