Description
Practical, amusing and entertaining: sporting good advice from 1906, now presented with evocative black-and-white photographs from an era of sportsmanship and good, old-fashioned fun. Cricketers: hundreds of pithy snippets of sporting common sense to apply from the dressing room to the crease. Includes: Don't glare at the umpire; Don't on any account go back once you have called your partner for a run; Don’t be in two minds about how you are going to play the ball; Don’t be sulky or sad if your bowling is punished; Don't be lazy or slovenly in the field; and Don't underestimate the temptation to insobriety. Inspiring advice for all abilities infused with a love for and the stirring spirit of the game. 'Don't imagine that there can be a more content world than a batsman who finds himself master of their bowling on a good wicket in a first-class match, with a fine day and a large crowd keenly anxious for his well-doing'.
