Bluffer’s Guide to Cricket: Instant wit and wisdom
James Trollope | Haynes Publishing Group | Paperback
Instantly acquire all the knowledge you need to become an expert in the arcane and labyrinthine game of cricket. Never again confuse a square leg with a very fine leg, a doosra with a jaffa, or a long hop with a leg break. Bask in the admiration of your fellow cricket lovers as you pronounce confidently on the finer points of play, the limitations of the players, and why the umpire needs to see an optician. But, above all, effortlessly hold your own against those who emerged from the womb consulting a copy of Wisden. Written by experts and offering readers the opportunity to pass off appropriated knowledge as their own, the Bluffer’s Guides provide hard fact masquerading as frivolous observation in one witty, easy read.
