Not Out at Close of Play: A Life in Cricket (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


One of only 25 players in the history of cricket to have scored 100 First Class centuries, Dennis Amiss is a member of the game's most prestigious elite. His experience as player and administrator in an era spanning an astonishing seven decades has afforded him a unique perspective of the dramatic changes that have taken place in cricket since he joined Warwickshire as a 15-year-old professional in 1958. Not Out at Close of Play explores how Dennis Amiss' passionate quest for success and

absolute commitment to refinement through meticulous preparation and practice led a Birmingham boy from humble origins to achieve sporting stardom with a Test batting average higher than Cowdrey, Graveney and Gower. At the heart of Dennis' story, however, lies the paradox nature of a quietly spoken and apparently conventional man who rebelled against the establishment, becoming a pioneer of innovation and change.
