"Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Cricket But Were too Afraid to Ask" explains the often-baffling laws of modern sport in a light-hearted and easy-to-understand way to the new fan/spectator or the 'sport widow'. This is a witty, off-the-wall guide to the rules of modern cricket, as if written by a very patient but understanding friend. Writer Iain Macintosh explains how cricket works and why is it so popular, and reveals the history of the game. He guides the novice through the basic rules of the sport in a bouncy, easy-to-fathom style, but also explains the fast-changing pace of the modern game that has made it even more compelling. If you've ever wondered what a Barmy Army is and how you sign up, or even if you've just wanted someone to sit you down and explain that whole LBW thing, this book is all you ever needed to know about cricket, but were too afraid to ask.
