by Harry Ricketts
Rudyard Kipling called cricketers 'flannelled fools'. Groucho Marx asked halfway through a cricket match when it would start, and Alfred Hitchcock put two cricket fans into a thriller as comic relief.Yet despite its notoriously slow pace, strange language, eccentric umpires and frequent scandals - or perhaps because of them - cricket is one of the world's most passionately followed sports."How to Catch a Cricket Match" is a funny, enlightening, and insightful volume in which lifelong cricket fan Harry Ricketts takes us on a tour of everything that makes cricket such a passion for millions of people across the globe.
