Product description

"How do you deliver a "googly" or make chin music? What are a beamer, a flipper, a corker, and a jaffa? What do a bunny, a cherry, a dolly and a royal golden duck have to do with sports?" Readers will discover the answers to these questions and learn much more about the noble sport of cricket in this entertaining and enlightening book. Written by a passionate player and cricket-watcher, the book traces the sport from the author's cricketing childhood in England to a seat on the bank at the 2006 match between the Black Caps and the Windies at the Basin Reserve.
