AN ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO CRICKET - THE GREATEST GAME OF ALL
Gideon Haigh has trained an unblinking eye on cricket for nearly thirty years.
An Eye on Cricket selects the best of his work since 2013, a period of unprecedented change in the summer game in Australia and overseas, encompassing the recapture and loss of the Ashes, the triumph of the World Cup, the rise of the Big Bash League, the tragedy of Phillip Hughes, the eclipse of Michael Clarke, and the passing of former greats from Richie Benaud to Max Walker.
The result is a vivid, often exciting, regularly amusing and sometimes alarming panorama, incorporating the future of Test cricket in a Twenty20 era, of Australia in an Indianised game, of fun in a professional world, and the scourges of fixing and doping - an essential guide to the greatest game of all.
