A fascinating collection of true stories about cricket's oddest matches—ranging from the bizarre to the downright hilarious. From eccentric Victorians to unpopular umpires, this hilarious book contains many remarkable matches. It includes the match that was played on ice, another that took place on a ship, and even a match played in the middle of the Solent—the strait separating the Isle of Wight from the mainland of England. Unusual contests include authors against actors, smokers against non-smokers, and even 50 farmers against Yatton CC. Drawn from the lengthy annals of the game's history, this is a must for all cricket enthusiasts and for anyone interested in the history of the sport.
