"For the first time, here is a pithy, street-wise collection of practical tips you need to know to improve your cricket skills. The tips come not only from Dean Jones, but from other players with many years of experience at the very top of the sport, and cover all aspects of the game : batting, bowling, fielding, wicket-keeping, strategy, mindset, tactics, fitness, and diet. With brilliant illustrations by award-winning cartoonist John Spooner, and contributions from former Australian and international superstars, such as Allan Border, Michael Clarke, Ricky Ponting, Shane Watson, Kevin Pietersen, and Wasim Akram, this full-colour book will appeal to a wide range of audiences and age groups, and to men, women, and children."
