Reader's note

The game of cricket is not easily defined. 'Casting a ball at three straight sticks and defending the same with a fourth', although not a poet's description, is, so far from being poetic, not even adequate. The world of sport is a circumscribed one, but some of its empires have grown out beyond its normal so much about the history of the classic sport! This stunning book comes complete with the colour plates that make the King Penguin series so famous!
