Every cricketing fan’s dream – a pocket guide to the game to cheer you up while your team is losing again!
Continuing the series of humorous Willow mini-books on sports begun with Golf and Football, a new book aimed squarely at the male gift market which pokes affectionate fun at one of the nation’s favourite ball games.
Complete with cartoons, this brand new title (from the author of A Little Book of Football) combines groan-inducing puns of the British pre-war variety with some more contemporary cricket-speak and occasional quotes.
‘Cricket is basically baseball on valium’ – Robin Williams
You can tell a cricketer's ansaphone. It always says he's 'not out'.
Cricket's the only game where, if there's a fire, you try to save the Ashes.
Dracula is something of an all-rounder – several maidens to his name and an impressive bat.
‘October's the month when the cricket fan realises their spouse left them in May’ – Denis Norden
