The Extraordinary Book of SA Cricket
The extraordinary book of South African cricket is the perfect gift for any cricket fanatic. Following up on their tremendous success with The Penguin Book of South African Sports Trivia, Kevin McCallum and David O'Sullivan have trawled the South African cricket archives and put together a collection of behind-the-scenes tales, curiosities, trivia, quotable quotes, famous pranks, amazing-but-true scorecards, great triumphs and embarrassing blunders. This encyclopedia of South African cricket trivia contains fascinating stories of: Clive Rice's dramatic last ball in a Currie Cup match; How frogs, dangerous cracks, fried calamari and pornography have all stopped play; Eddie Barlow's four wickets in five balls playing for the Rest of the World; Herschelle Gibbs's six sixes in an ODI; Tony Greig's epileptic fit during a Currie Cup match; Basil D'Oliveira's 225 in 65 minutes and much more.
