Publisher Description

Which first-class cricket team contained two players who would later be murdered? Who was the Australian-born Test cricketer who became a cage fighter? Which former England all-rounder set a world record for eating the most peas with a cocktail stick? Which pair of brothers share the most century partnerships in Test match cricket, and who was the bowler who took Test wickets with consecutive balls, seven years apart? The answers to all these teasers can be found in this irresistible, addictive, and routinely astonishing collection of cricketing facts, feats, and figures. Opening the door on areas such as cricket and politics, cricket and music, cricket and films, royalty, and cuisine, the book transcends cricketing trivia. Outside Edge amounts to a wholly original compendium of the most unusual stories from across the whole breadth of the global game's rich history and culture. Featuring a foreword by Australian Test legend Geoff Lawson.
