    Description
    From match-fixing, board-room punch-ups and captains in disgrace through to selection scams, insults and mob violence, cricket has long been surrounded by scandal. The so-called gentleman's game has been exposed to conspiracies and searing headlines ever since the Sydney riot of 1879 when English captain Lord Harris was attacked with a stick. Now revelations of players on the take and illegal billion-dollar bookmaking rackets have triggered fresh storms. In Cricket's Greatest Scandals, award-winning sports writer Ken Piesse explores the most damning incidents, names the ringleaders and bunglers and reveals the vulnerability of an age-old game steeped in tradition.
