Lives in Cricket

This new series of books by the ACS are lively and well-written biographies of people who, as the title suggests, have had a fascinating life in cricket.

Amongst the people covered in this series are county stalwarts such as Allan Watkins and Jack Bond for whom biographies have never previously been published.

Edited originally by David Jeater and now by Mark Rowe, this series tells the story of some of cricket’s most interesting characters, as well as providing a fresh insight on some of the players such as Lionel Palairet, Somerset’s first great batsman, and England Women’s allrounder Enid Bakewell.

Supplemented by photographs and other statistical information, the books in this series are a must-have for the serious student of the game.
