Cricket Web Book of the Year 2008


Cricket Web’s first cricket book of the year is an instant classic. Martin takes a look for us. Runner Up is Jack Fingleton, easily the best Australian cricket book of the year. Stuart gives a lovely critique.


The Rise of New Zealand Cricket


New Zealand were the fifth country to play Test Cricket back in 1929/30 when an England team lead by Harold Gilligan played a four match series. The purpose of this article is to enable comparisons to be made with the more recent elevations of Zimbabwe and Bangladesh and, perhaps, to stimulate some debate.


No Coward Soul


Well it had to happen sooner or later, and today Martin gives the first five star book ever for Cricket Web.

Starting next Monday we will have seven book reviews in seven days, and then we will award the Cricket Web book of the year.
