Description

From one of the finest writers on the game comes ""Inside Out"", Gideon Haigh's latest despatches from the crease.In 2008, he celebrates the centenary of Bradman's birth and 75 years of Bodyline; ponders the quintessence of the 'Don', even as he looks at cricket's other knights; dissects the Australian way of cricket across demography, politics and the politics of race; attempts to unravel the mystery that is cricket administration; and explains the finer points of cricket technique from taking guard to the leave.Whether it be the game as it is played on the world arena or at grass-roots level, Haigh will compel you to regard the game anew.
