The purpose of this thread is to discuss aspects of cricket history and share resources and books that are helpful.
I enjoy cricket history, I know quite a bit (more than I used to!) but there's plenty I don't know but would like to know. I've been slowly building a library of cricket history books and resources for a decade or so with the intention of one day being a bit of an authority on cricket history. We'll see.
Anyway, ask and answer or share as you will. I have a simple question that I'd like an answer to if possible, to kick things off: Has changing of ends between overs always happened, or in the very early days of formalised cricket did bowlers bowl from only one end?
