100 Greatest Cricketers, Revised & Upd/Armstrong, Geo/Paper/1742570624/S002-G
Almost 2500 men have appeared in Test cricket, from the inaugural Test played in March 1877 to today. To reduce this list to the best 100 is an imposing task, but it is also one that is guaranteed to provoke argument among those with an eye for the game’s history and its greatest players.
In The 100 Greatest Cricketers, experienced sportswriter and publisher Geoff Armstrong has compared eras, analysed career records, sifted through fact and fiction and enjoyed much discussion and debate with colleagues and friends to come up with a list of the best players of all time, ranked from one to 100. He has done so by selecting nine teams, and then nominated his favourite all-time player as the ‘100th man’. Each team includes two openers, three middle-order batsmen, an all-rounder, a wicketkeeper and four bowlers, at least one of whom is a spinner.
This new, updated edition re-evaluates the previous selection, with the removal and addition of recent cricketing achievements. Who got dropped from this exclusive team, and who made it in?
With a foreword written by former Australian Captain, Steve Waugh, this book is the ultimate compendium to the legends that have graced international cricket pitches. Complemented with a broad range of colour and black-and-white photographs, as well as individual statistics for each selected player, The 100 Greatest Cricketers will give enourous pleasure to fans and generate endless debate as connoisseurs compile and compare their own list of cricket's greatest ever players.
