From the cover: “A light-hearted look at the game of cricket, is the third in the series of humorous books on sport. There are many who will claim that there is nothing funny about cricket and cricketers, certainly not in the hallowed precincts of Lord's, the Oval and Headingley. But few sports have not got their humorous sides and cricket is no exception. Anyone attempting to poke fun at the game may stir ghosts in the Long room at Lord's. But the ghosts can rest undisturbed, for this glimpse at cricket in lighter vein is projected with a great deal of good-humoured intent.
