They prove the truth of the old adage that cricket isn’t only a game but also an institution. Each of the contributors deals with familiar subjects in his own uniquely stimulating way. John Arlott examines not only the history and sociology of cricket, but also contributes a short essay on its future. Fred Trueman, in his pen-portraits of the gallery of great players of his time provides a living context for Arlott’s reflections and assessments.
