A Complete History of World Cup Cricket: 1975-1999
Despite the surplus of Limited-Over tournaments in international cricket, there is one event that needs no tampering to increase its value to anyone watching or playing in it. The World Cup established its pre-eminence as the premier Limited-Over cricket event from its inception a quarter of a century ago. Over the gorgeously sunny two weeks in England in June 1975, One-Day International cricket silenced all doubters as it showed itself to be an exciting and meaningful part of the old game.
In this masterly book Mark Browning, the esteemed Australian sports journalist, brings us all the facts and figures, not to mention the heroes and villains, that have graced the game throughout its illustrious history.
