Cricket Teas

Availability: In stock

Author: Phil McCann, Foreword by Peter Baxter

A cricket tea is an integral part of any cricket match. It’s a well-known fact that some players only turn out at windswept grounds on the promise of a solid brew, a chewy wedge of cake and a sticky handful of egg mayo sandwiches. Likewise, there is always an occasional away fixture where the teas are traditionally so dire that mysterious illness and injury striking down a portion of the squad is all but guaranteed. Meanwhile, at the top level of the game, professionalism has now reached the kitchen and calories have joined run and strike rates on the ever-valuable statistics sheets that help to shape and tailor the regimes of the world’s finest cricketers.

With recollections from village heroes, international stars and legends of the game, including the likes of Sir Michael Parkinson, Michael Vaughan and Jack Simmons, Cricket Teas is the first book to investigate this most sacred of sporting traditions.
