The gentlemen who brought cricket from England's villages to the pavilion at Lord's were as equally gifted with wit and banter as they were with leather and willow. Their turns of phrase, intellectual insights and outlandish observations were as likely to knock you for six as to leave you stumped. This book gathers often hilarious, sometimes sombre and occasionally downright bizarre quotations - the greats of the game describing their beloved sport in their own words.
