Rest of the World, Commonwealth and International XI Cricketers
Compiled by Keith Warsop
This book concentrates on players who appeared in first-class matches for Rest of the World, Commonwealth and International XIs between 1945 and 1994, though there is an appendix on World XI players from Kerry Packer’s World Series Cricket. 21st-century matches given official international status are not included.
In addition to the usual biographical details on each player, there is an introduction discussing the concept and development of World XIs, with brief notes on some of the tours and English festival matches. There are lists of the various touring parties, tables of tour results and potted scores of unofficial Tests.
