We've been swallowing the myth for years; that cricket is a gentlemanly pursuit, where bad luck is something to be borne stoically, and bad behaviour is poor form that will get you drummed out of the club. This is plainly nonsense. The Worst of Cricket is a warts-and-all celebration of the truth that malice and misfortune play a crucial role in the world's cruellest game. So pad up and take your guard against the very worst elements of cricket, from the worst imaginable gamesmanship to the worst thrashings and injuries; from the worst umpiring decisions, confrontations and missed catches to the worst instances of cheating and brawling. Here are fielders impaled on pavilion gates, groundsmen sparking riots by rolling the pitch, sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll-style dressing-room trashings - all in a book that will simultaneously delight and appal any supporter or aficionado of the first-class game.
