041

A rousing anthology of some of the most peculiar, phenomenal and pernicious incidents to have burnished and tarnished a cricket field in equal measure. The incidents are more of “Eye witness” accounts as they are narrated by the protagonists in their own words and employing their own emotions.

Whether it be Dennis Lillee brandishing an aluminum bat, or Derek “Deadly” Underwood scoring his first ever first class century after 22 seasons, the stories all have a surreal tinge to them. While some of the tales such as Michael Holding’s fiery burst at the Oval to leave England bruised and battered are common folklore others such as a Buxton pitch covered with snow in June and Asif Din scoring a breathtaking century to pull a rabbit out of the hat against Sussex are uniquely singular in their bizarre occurrence.

A rollicking read for any cricket aficionado!
