Description
Information
What's the difference between short leg and deep midwicket? When would you be thinking about bowling a yorker? What's so great about the sound of leather on willow? Cricket's vocabulary is a mixture of jargon and cliché, poetry and prose, misty-eyed romanticism and old-gits' cynicism. 'Arm-ball To Zooter' is a witty guide to the peculiarities of the game, its history and major figures; cricket-lovers might find their own pet hates confirmed; cricket newcomers might be amazed at what cricket-lovers have been up to all these years.
