Ground Rules taps into the world's love affair with cricket, and explains how key cricket grounds around the world have played significantly in cricketing heritage since 1877. Each chapter takes a different Test Match venue from one of the ten test-playing nations--two each in the case of Australia, England, and India--and provides a fascinating, colorful account of the players, matches, and incidents that have shaped the history of test cricket at that site. Ground Rules: A Celebration of Test Cricket is beautifully illustrated with two hundred eighty large format color images--many of them rare--from some of the world's leading cricket photographers, including Patrick Eagar and Graham Morris, and renowned photography agencies such as Getty Images. The book also boasts a fascinating compilation of Wisden statistics--including the scorecards of every Test Match played at the featured grounds since the birth of international cricket. With a foreword by David Gower, the authors of each chapter include international cricketers Andy Flower, Steve Waugh, Sourav Ganguly, and Kumar Sangakkara; and celebrated cricket writers and broadcasters Donna Symmonds, Qamar Ahmed, Christopher Martin-Jenkins, Peter Robinson, Richard Hobson, and Richard Boock.
