About this title

Synopsis:

Who scored the 5000th international century? Which New Zealand Test captain married a Miss Universe? And which Test cricketer's son was placed on Interpol's most-wanted list? From the beginnings of the game to the present day, Inside Edge delivers a treasure trove of global cricketing curiosities. Immerse yourself in the magic that is cricket with a panoply of wildly unusual feats on the field, and just as many eyebrow-raising incidents after the close of play. From the brother-and-sister twins who played for Australia to the 14-year-old schoolboy who scored 500 in a match in India, Marc Dawson serves up facts, feats and figures destined to delight all followers of this amazing game. With 20 subject areas including Twenty20 cricket, cricket and politics, music and cinema and cricket in wartime, Inside Edge features an array of esoteric, previously unpublished photographs, famous scorecards, quirky quotations and statistical tables.

Review:

"A delightfully interesting and compelling read from start to finish. A veritable mine of information of over 300 pages of facts and figures. A most stimulating book, which no lover of the game should be without." --RajeshKumarCricketStatistician.com

"Arranged thematically, some of the material may be familiar to some, but unless one spends all day every day immersed in cricket books and websites (which perhaps Marc Dawson does) there will be many novel items here. He has unearthed some distinctly unusual facts, such as the Bandarawela Central Under-13s scoring 553-3 and then dismissing their opponents for 3 in 2013. Covering all levels of cricket, including the women's game, this is a celebration of the game's capacity to produce the bizarre, the eccentric and the memorable, and is ideal for dipping into at odd moments." --The Cricket Statistician

"Inside Edge has come up with many bizarre, extraordinary and fascinating snippets of cricketing information. It isn't so much that Marc has managed to fill twenty chapters and 320 pages with quirky facts and figures but the breadth and extent of his research. This review can only mention so much and the reader must simply pick this book up and enjoy it. Beautifully presented by Pitch Publishing, this book is a bargain at £12.99 and should give much pleasure. Bring on the next one and, ideally, soon." --AndrewRobertsCricketStatistics.com
