Cricket's Great All-rounders: the Greatest Across Three Centuries and Nine Countries (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


"Cricket's Great All- Rounders" is the first book to profile all-rounders in Tests and in one-day internationals. From the mustached George Gliffen of the 1980s and 'Nugget' Miller, to 'Freddie' Flintoff and dreadlocked Andrew Symonds of 2000s, this book is an interesting mix of characters and super performers, adept in batting, bowling and fielding or wicket keeping.This book includes less known facts, namely Garry Sobers was born with twelve fingers. Alan Davidson writes in the Forward, "Kersi's book made me feel nostalgic, thinking of 'Nugget' Miller and my mater Richie Benaud. To me 'Nugget', Garry Sobers and Ian Botham were the greatest all- rounders. Kersi has brought their and all other all-rounderes' mighty deed to life.
