Game for Anything: Writings on Cricket
Cricket is serious fun. And no - one writes about cricket with deeper knowledge or greater flair that Gideon Haigh. Game for Anything collects his best work of the last decade: from probing the Bradman myth and evaluating C.L.R. James to celebrating Len Pascoe and suffering being hit for six. To cricket's recent torments - match - fixing, throwing, sledging, politics - he brings fresh insights and an irreverent with. Game for Anything is a book as rich as the game it describes: grand, humble, funny, sad, sublime, ridiculous.
