Product description

Rich in history and steeped in tradition, the complexities and nuances of cricket, in all forms of the game, have enthralled generations of fans since the days of W.G. Grace and Victor Trumper. The game has changed beyond all recognition from its advent in Victorian times as a mass spectator sport in England and Australia - Test cricket has now spread around the world, the 50-over version has become an accepted mainstay, and Twenty20, has attracted legions of new fans to the game - but the fundamentals have remained the same: to score more runs and take more wickets than the opposition. In the process, legends have been born and new benchmarks have been set. Fully revised and updated to include the latest facts, stats and records - for many cricket-lovers consider that Test cricket had its most interesting year in history in 2011 - "World Cricket Records 2013" is a celebration of more than 140 years of excellence, featuring not only a host of records from all formats of the international game (first-class cricket, one-day internationals and Twenty 20), but also the stories behind them, and a series of potted biographies of some of the greatest players ever to have walked onto a cricket field. If you ever get into an argument about cricket facts and stats, anywhere in the world, "World Cricket Records 2013" will not only provide you with the definitive answer, it will also give you loads of additional information that will amaze your audience.
