Description

Cricket Through the Decades is a spectacular visual timeline of the sport from the 1870s through to the 1970s. Let the magnificent collection of historic pictures, some never seen before, take you on a journey through cricket's most heralded players, record breakers, both the great and the controversial. From the early days of the sport when Victor Trumper was Australia's greatest batsman, to the formidable cover-drives of legendary all-rounder Gary Sobers, you'll find images of the greatest batsmen, bowlers, keepers and fielders cricket has ever seen, along with exhaustively researched captions. With nearly 600 rare photographs, this book showcases the game's greats in their glorious, and sometimes not so glorious, moments.
