Prose: non-fiction, Lifestyle, sport & leisure, Humour, Humour collections & anthologies, Sports & outdoor recreation, Cricket

The funniest collection of cricket anecdotes, jokes and stories from the game's best-loved personalities that no cricket fan should be without.

A bumper collection of the funniest anecdotes, jokes and stories from cricket's best-loved personalities. Cricket is a funny old game - even when rain stops play!

Now you can read not only the most popular stories by five of the game s all-time great characters - Richie Benaud, Dickie Bird, Henry Blofeld, Brian Johnston and Fred Trueman - but also the humour and insights of modern players including Michael Atherton, Andrew Flintoff, Darren Gough, Kevin Pietersen and Shane Warne.

Crammed full of dozens of hilarious anecdotes about legendary Test cricketers such as Ian Botham, Geoffrey Boycott, Denis Compton, Michael Holding and Merv Hughes plus broadcasting gaffes, sledging, short-sighted umpires and the first male streaker at Lord's!
