About the Book

The definitive cricket quiz book with 2000 quality questions on all aspects of the game.

Since England won the Ashes in 2005 cricket has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity. This book will appeal to quiz goers but also to cricket enthusiasts to enjoy as an informative read.
Some of the facts and brainteasers will amuse and entertain as well.
Questions allude to all facets of the game including the laws of cricket, the politics, the history, the venues, the teams, the players, the results and the winners and the losers. The major tournaments are covered - the Test Matches, One Day Internationals, The World Cup, Twenty 20, County Cricket and Ashes contests.

- straightforward question and answer
- true or false
- who am I?
- anagrams e.g. which player's name is an anagram of 'Fanned off twirl'
- who said?
