Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “Twenty years ago, cricket was heading for bankruptcy; starved of gate receipts it limped through the county season. Today, all that has changed. Cricket is a brisk business, with powerful sponsors, young blood, and turnstiles clicking over nicely. What made all this possible was the advent of the limited over game — much maligned by the purists but much in demand by the public. This book is a complete record, with scorecards and reports, of all the one-day internationals that have ever been played. Not only does the book provide a cherished keepsake of the never-to-be-repeated excitement of these particular matches, and cater for the well-known obsession of cricket-lovers everywhere for collecting record of a phenomenon — one of the most significant revolutions to sweep through any sport in recent years.”
