The Times’ 50 greatest sports books, part 1

Three cricket books have made it so far into the Times’ countdown of the 50 greatest sports books.

They are:

50 Hit Hard and Enjoy It by T.C. ‘Dickie’ Dodds (1976)

44 The Cricket War: the Inside Story of Kerry Packer’s World Series Cricket by Gideon Haigh (1993)

42 Harold Larwood – the authorised biography of the world’s fastest bowler by Duncan Hamilton

The list continues tomorrow with numbers 40-31. I’m sure more cricket books will feature..
