Cricket's Strangest Matches: Extraordinary but True Stories from Over a Century of Cricket

Author(s): Andrew Ward

Sport

Cricket's Strangest Tales is a fascinating collection of cricketing weirdness - and there's a lot of it to choose from! Within these pages you'll find a game that was played on ice, meet a plague of flying ants who failed to dampen players' enthusiasm, and examples of the grand old tradition of one-armed teams versus one-legged teams. The stories in this book are bizarre, fascinating, hilarious, and, most importantly, true. Fully revised, redesigned and updated with a selection of new material for 2016, this book is the perfect gift for the cricket fanatic in your life. Word count: 45,000 words
