Welcome to The Periodic Table of Cricket. Here you’ll find the essential elements - batsmen and bowlers past and present - that have left a lasting legacy on this great sport. As with chemical elements, these international personalities have been arranged based on their characteristics in and out of play. Instead of metals and non-metals, here we have patient and determined defensive players, from Jack Hobbs to Hanif Mohammad and Alastair Cook transitioning to fast-paced and attacking players including Shane Warne, Fred Trueman and 'white lightning' Allan Donald with a whole host of others in between. See how the best international players stack up against each other in this original guide to cricket.

Cricket is a strange game. It is a team sport that is almost entirely dependent on individual performance. Its combination of time, opportunity and the constant threat of disaster can drive its participants to despair. To survive a single delivery propelled at almost 100 miles an hour takes the body and brain to the edges of their capabilities, yet its abiding image is of the gentle village green, and the glorious absurdities of the amateur game. In The Meaning of Cricket, Jon Hotten attempts to understand this fascinating, frustrating and complex sport. Blending legendary players, from Vivian Richards to Mark Ramprakash, Kevin Pietersen to Ricky Ponting, with his own cricketing story, he explores the funny, moving and melancholic impact the game can have on an individual life.

Covering all aspects of cricket groundsmanship, this text sets the maintenance of modern cricket grounds in historical context by a survey of the groundsman's art since the 1600s. The work details the history of groundsmanship either side of World War II, looking at the modern role of agronomists and other scientists in the study of cricket surfaces. Subsequent topics include: the assessment of an existing table; pitch preparation; mechanized maintenance operations; fertilizer and top dressing; weed, moss, worm and pest control; renovation and repair; and care of the outfield. A chapter is devoted to the planning and construction of new grounds.

I have been handed the new ball and asked to bowl the opening spell in this book of Cricket Commentary and Commentators. It was always my ambition to play Test cricket for India, but I was allergic to grass. A pity because I would have been the silliest mid-on to have played Test cricket. My long leg would have been a sensation. There have never been swingers to match mine. I used to be such an agile fielder that a piece of music ‘Third Man Theme’ was composed as a tribute On the serious side, as a commentator, I was always fascinated by how cricket commentary began. While the journey of cricket commentary is fairly well-recorded in Australia and England, the information on the subject in other eight Test playing countries is scanty. This book – Cricket Commentary & Commentators – is a humble attempt to weave together threads scattered in different areas and diverse directions. The scope of the book has been enlarged to include not just commentators but even anchors, presenters, scorers and statisticians while making it a compendium on commentary. With these opening remarks, I urge you, the reader, to move forward.

“In supporting and deifying the same cricketers our media and the Indian citizens possibly become a party to periodic terror killings of their own countrymen.” Is there only sporadic match-fixing in cricket? Are only a few greedy players involved in fixing? Have the legends like Sachin and Dhoni been clean? Is fixing limited to T20 Leagues? Has international cricket ever been a competitive sport? Where and how do the experts and the commentators fit in? Bettors Beware gives clear and unambiguous answers to these and related questions that will shake not only you, not only the cricket establishment, not only India, but half the world. Following his path-breaking work, Inside the Boundary Line, centred on match-fixing in cricket, Atul Kumar unearths damning evidence to nail everyone actively and passively involved in the continuous match-fixing that is international cricket. Read to marvel at the truth unravelled in this historic book.
