Archie, authors are: WARD, Martin and OLDMAN, Paul. It's Padwick number is Padwick II 3388.
Oh no it is some satirical nonsense. I've got a reprinted edition of it. It is quite profusely illustrated with nonsensical things.
Worth getting though, will probably give you a laugh, and you can pick it up quite cheaply.
Well perhaps to be fairer to him, he was merely describing the book in a way the authors would be proud; or put another way: YES!
It takes far far too long to get a review up. This is just the kind of thing that makes one lose interest in writing here.
If I was to review all the books I wanted to, at this rate I may not live to see them on the site
I know what I am going to do. Start my own blog and write there

You will be missed:-
Sourav Ganguly , Anil Kumble , Jonty Rhodes , Chris Cairns , Adam Gilchrist , Heath Streak , Micheal Bevan , Robin Singh
Jonty, you want to read a good book published in India and easily available then buy The Picador Book of Cricket. A collection of Essays (compiled by Guha) by some of the greatest cricket writers. Its a superb anthology. Read it if you haven't and dump Chetan Bhagat if you want to be serious about reading cricket literature
I have very less knowledge about cricket books......although i have rarely missed any match from last ten years(from the age of six).......
Now I m 16 and time to look at cricket books too.......
So,I will consider your The Picador Book of Cricket....
But they do a big favour to the reader.
You wont be able to buy al the books he has picked up these essays from. So he does it for you and then choses some gems from them and puts them together.
There are many great anthologies available, I recommend this to you not only because it is very good but also because it is so easily available in India.
