About this title

Synopsis:

Ground Rules taps into the world's love affair with cricket, and explains how key cricket grounds around the world have played significantly in cricketing heritage since 1877. Each chapter takes a different Test Match venue from one of the ten test-playing nations - two each in the case of Australia, England, and India - and provides a fascinating, colorful account of the players, matches, and incidents that have shaped the history of test cricket at that site. Ground Rules: A Celebration of Test Cricket is beautifully illustrated with two hundre eighty large format color images - many of them rare - from some of the world's leading cricket photographers, including Patrick Eagar and Graham Morris, and renowned photography agencies such as Getty Images. The book also boasts a fascinating compilation of Wisden statistics - including the scorecards of every Test Match played at the featured grounds since the birth of international cricket. With a foreword by David Gower, the authors of each chapter include international cricketers Andy Flower, Steve Waugh, Sourav Ganguly, and Kumar Sangakkara; and celebrated cricket writers and broadcasters Donna Symmonds, Qamar Ahmed, Christopher Martin-Jenkins, Peter Robinson, Richard Hobson, and Richard Boock. "A must for any serious cricketing aficionado or fan of the great game and a wonderful addition to anyone's book collection. All we have to do now is hope that there will be a second volume in the future!" (BBC)
