Riassunto: Inspired by a rare cricket book, published in a limited edition in 1897, Jonathan Rice has assembled a collection of subsequent facts, anecdotes and curiosities relating to the game. Many records - and limbs - have been broken since 1897, and many strange matches played, including some in unusual places, such as Antarctica, and the Goodwin Sands at low tide. A double-century before lunch at The Oval will be hard to beat, as will six wickets in an over, Saltwood CC's dismissal of an opposing team for nought, and E.F. Mellor's two hat-tricks - one whilst bowling with his left hand and one with his right. The book records these and many other anecdotes and instances of eccentric cricket lore.
