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