Ken lives, eats and breathes cricket like few I know. – RICKY PONTING

Book overview

From a horse that took a triple hat-trick, to captains who tossed over the telephone, and an umpire who went missing in mid-over for a wee, Favourite Cricket Yarns is a compelling smorgasboard of tall and mostly true stories, from Australian cricket’s master storyteller Ken Piesse, who began a 50-year association with the game as a scorer for his local club.

Gaffes, sledges, bloopers and quips are intermingled between laugh-a-minute mid-pitch anecdotes and a stunning range of illustrations and cartoons sure to delight.
