    One Reply to “Cricket's Strangest Matches”

    1. Great read for advanced cricket nerds like me What strikes me is the way in which cricket s unique culture has developed over the last two hundred years, mostly by way of amateur games, clubs and many very eccentric people.

    2. This book is saved by short chapters detailing interesting games Despite being a short book it feels padded out with the full scorecard of every single match mentioned, even when the individual performances in no way reflect the strangeness of the match in question One gets the sense that the author enjoyed the uncovering of these unusual fixtures, yet there is nothing to suggest this book is much than an edited highlights of Wisden A bit of research e.g some reminiscences from those involved m [...]

    3. A bit of a coffee table loo book, and not that impressive a one at that The premise of the book is a reasonably interesting one, but the writing was a touch too factual and plain, and when it comes down to it there is only so many ways in which you can say these teams were playing cricket, and this player did really well and scored lots or got lots of wickets, and the scorecard looks a bit interesting as a consequence without it getting a bit repetitive.

    4. Entertaining collection of matches described briefly.I read the 2005 edition and it was badly let down by errors in proof reading especially in the scorecards Most of matches are chosen for record high low scores rather than being strange per se but it was entertaining none the less.

    5. Very straightforward read about cricket records that were broken as opposed to really strange matches An easy read, one than onto something with a bit depth

    6. This book is fun then a well written book Personally, as a cricket fan I really enjoyed a look at some of the oddities this great game can throw up.
