Cricket's Great All-rounders by Kersi Meher-Homji

Book Description

"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.

Cricket Conflicts and Controversies by Kersi Meher-Homji Cricket Conflicts and Controversies, Paperback (November 2012)

Through the chucking and ball-tampering accusations and match throwing, the on-field kicking, bribery and drug taking allegations, the gentle game of cricket has shown its other side - the dark, murky one. This book exposes the rock star underbelly of cricket, from the "Bodyline" series of 1932-33 to the "Bollyline" series of 2007-08.
