Review:

The A-Z of Australian Cricketers provides detailed and well-researched biographies, including career statistics, for every player to have represented Australia at Test level and a host of other memorable characters from Limited Overs and the first-class scene. Comprising 646 entries in total, this book is a useful reference work for any cricket buff, though potential purchasers should be aware that it is ostensibly the same text, updated and slightly expanded, as that found in the comprehensive Oxford Companion to Australian Cricket. The 45 contributors take in an impressive selection of experts and significant figures from the Australian cricket scene, making this an authoritative volume of considered appraisals. Starry-eyed eulogies these are not--players' problems and weaknesses are also examined, and the result is a series of well-balanced, beautifully written portraits that capture the essential characters of these antipodean sporting heroes. --Alisdair Bowles
