As it approaches its 140th birthday, Test cricket remains the most rich, complex and beguiling sport of all. However, it is under pressure like never before. Eclipsed by the heady glamour of Twenty20, compromised by poor administration and struggling to escape a decade of corruption scandals, five-day cricket faces an uncertain future. In this important book Mike Jakeman lays bare the problems facing Test match cricket and, based on interviews with players, administrators, umpires, groundsmen and police, charts a course for the survival of the sport in an age when five days is longer than ever. Foreword by Jon Hotten.
