Filled to the brim with quirky quotes, fantastic facts and surprising statistics, this is the perfect gift book for any fan of the game. Bizarre cricket lingo, politics and rivalries and even how to make the perfect cricket tea are all included in Cricket, A Very Peculiar History. Fact boxes, a full glossary and index make the book both fun and informative to use. The text is enlivened with black-and-white line drawings and full-colour endpapers.
