This book is a must for fans of Australian cricket. It is a registry of every first class player Australian cricket has developed all together in one book. Every Test, One-Day International, 20/20 and Sheffield Shield player dating back to 1888 is in this book 3,500 names, essential statistics and biographies of the main players. The stats are broken down for the major players to include best bowling and batting performances at all levels of the game but for every player there is the important information of birth, death, state and career stats. Also included are 25 rare shots of famous players from A to Z (no X). Easily referenced in chapters A to Z, respected cricket authors Ken Piesse and Charles Davis have collated a lifetime of knowledge and interest in the game to publish this never-before assembled Encyclopedia of Australian Cricket Players. This will be the bible for all cricket lovers as they watch the game over the coming summers (and the Ashes series in England in June 2013) and answer the eternal question Who was the player that?
