England’s cricket captain has written one of the most entertaining books for years.
A natural game player, winner while at school of some of England’s most famous squash trophies, football captain, cricket captain, university cricket and hockey blue, scorer of centuries for Cambridge, Norman Yardley swiftly rose to captain both England and (some say,harder still!)Yorkshire.
This book tells of selectors’ last minute decisions at conferences which England’s captain attended. It details over-by-over tactics in Test Matches against Australia and South Africa when Yardley had to make difficult decisions on the field.It gives really intimate glimpses of cricket’s greatest men, and speaks frankly of cricket’s burning problem today.
