'Outstanding this book ought to change the writing of cricket history by setting new standards the affect is evocative and powerful. Buy his book. It's brilliant.' - Matthew Engel, Wisden Cricket Monthly the Summer Game is a fascinating history of Australia in international cricket between 1949 and 1971. Gideon Haigh describes the triumphs and failures of Australia on the international cricket circuit, and tells the stories of some our greatest cricketers: Richie Benaud, Keith Miller, Ray Lindwall, Neil Harvey, Bob Simpson, Bill Lawry and Alan Davidson.
