SKETCHES OF A SEASON – Buy it here.
The confrontation of the ‘Old Enemies’ in an Ashes series brings a special excitement to any cricket season and in 1989, after an empty winter, British cricket followers looked to the new Dexter/Gower leadership to shape up and emerge victorious over an Australian squad which was likely to prove more formidable than the sides beaten in England in 1985 and in Australia in 1987. In this book, the author remarks not only on the disastrous events of the Test series but also on the day to day activities of the domestic competitions which produced a tame end to the County Championship but two breathless finals at Lord’s and a well-deserved consolation for Essex at Edgbaston. His affection for the game is complemented by Jack Russell’s marvellously evocative sketches. Sketches of a Season provides a uniquely entertaining and attractive record of a cricketing summer -an ideal gift for the cricket enthusiast despite the result of the Test series
