Description

THE CRICKET SOCIETY/MCC BOOK OF THE YEAR and THE BRITISH SPORTS BOOK AWARDS CRICKET BOOK OF THE YEAR. Shane Warne is one of the most fascinating sports people on the planet. You might not follow cricket, you may never have even seen Warne play, yet you know who he is, what he looks like and what is going on in his personal life at any given time. Selected as one of five Wisden Cricketers of the Century, Warne dazzled opposition batsmen with his bowling and thrilled cricket fans with his skills, outspokenness and scandals off the pitch. Gideon Haigh, one of the world's most celebrated cricket journalists, tackles this great personality in his unique style. How has Warne shaped his sport and how has his sport shaped him? Who is the real man behind the back page and front page headlines? This short book reveals more about Warne than any number of other, much longer, volumes could ever do. As the Cricketer said: it is 'definitive'.show more
