Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “This book is the first of its kind. Never before have two cricketers in the same team kept separate diaries of an England tour in Australia — and with a gap of seventeen years between them, the views of Bob Taylor and David Gower are fascinatingly diverse. Aided by BBC journalist Patrick Murphy, the players describe the daily events of England’s triumphant visit. But “Anyone for Cricket?” is not just about the game, although England’s most exciting young batsman and the world’s number one wicketkeeper reveal stimulating insights into the sport. It’s also about Australia as a continent, the people, the way of life and the pressures a touring side has to face. This is a really absorbing account of the nature of the overseas tour.”
