SKU: 9780285641020


In this, another collection of classic cricket writing by Sir Neville Cardus, he urges that the game itself is more important than winning, players should fully express themselves in the game and he writes about those players who delight the senses: Hurst and Hutton, McCabe and Compton. There are essays on the Indians, West Indians and the 1948 Australians who Cardus considered the best team ever to visit England. An outstanding article describes an innings by Compton that he believed to be 'champagne for the connoisseur, ginger pop for the boys'.
