9780957141032: Saving the Test

As it approaches its 140th birthday, Test cricket remains the most rich, complex and beguiling sport of all. However, it is under pressure like never before. Eclipsed by the heady glamour of Twenty20, compromised by poor administration and struggling to escape a decade of corruption scandals, five-day cricket faces an uncertain future. In this important book Mike Jakeman lays bare the problems facing Test match cricket and, based on interviews with players, administrators, umpires, groundsmen and police, charts a course for the survival of the sport in an age when five days is longer than ever. Foreword by Jon Hotten.

About the Author:

Mike Jakeman is a writer and editor with the Economist Group, where he spends his time thinking about Asia. He plays Sunday cricket, where he bowls like Paul Collingwood and bats like Chris Martin. This is his first book.

Review:

"an illuminating and important book" - ESPNcricinfo "a welcome reminder of what the game still has to overcome" - All Out Cricket "pithy new analysis" - Gideon Haigh "rigorously researched and written" - the Independent "the people that Jakeman has sought out to add to the book are fascinating and if you are a fan of Test cricket this is a must read. What Jakeman set out to do here is laudable, perhaps even more impressive is the fact that he managed to do it" - Peter Miller "in pulling all the strands together within one volume Jakeman provides a valuable point of reference to the state of play at what may be seen in years to come as a pivotal phase in cricket's evolution" - The Sports Bookshelf
