Before "More than a Game", I read "Bodyline Autopsy" by David Frith. I am really interested in the history of the game. Which books would you suggest that I should read?
England V Australian 1877-(lots of editions) by David Frith (history of the Ashes)
The Glory Days of Cricket -Ashley Mote (early days of cricket, Hambleton
Alfred Mynn & Cricketers of His Time - Morrah, Patrick
The Summer Game - Haigh, Gideon
I have just checked some information about the books you have suggested me. All of them seem to be very interested. I think I will buy "Alfred Mynn & Cricketers of His Time". Thank you very much.
Then, I would like to read something about WG Grace and about cricket in Pakistan. Any advice?

Well, I haven't quite got that far yet -- I'm still in 1865 --, but I couldn't resist a spot of speed-reading which took me through the parts that mattered. I'm tackling the book in earnest now and enjoying it thoroughly.
I'm surprised that you didn't learn anything new from it; I didn't know, for example, about the court case in which Grace's paternal grandfather was enmeshed, albeit posthumously -- I think.
