|Cricket Explained offers the sports enthusiast a user-friendly introduction to baseballs British cousin, a game that shares with Americas national pastime the common ancestor rounders. This is the definitive beginners guide to the game of cricket, written by a world authority on the sport, the co-inventor of the Coopers & Lybrand World Cricket Ratings System. Cricket Explained takes the reader from the games fundamentals -- basic rules, terminology, equipment -- to the finer points of strategy, individual playing styles, and cricket lore. The book includes a combined glossary/index for easy reference and is illustrated throughout with the lighthearted drawings of British cartoonist Mark Stevens. So even if you dont know short leg from silly mid off or a bowler from a batsman, youll come away from Cricket Explained with an understanding for this truly international sport which, like baseball, is loved both for its elegant simplicity and its vexing complexity.
