(out of print)

This book explores the many and varied connections between cricket and the law. Both of these areas, sport and the law, have invaded our daily lives to a large degree and share a role in shaping popular culture. From restrictive trade practices to manslaughter, from underarm bowling to sledging, the connections between cricket and the law are many and complex. This book is filled with anecdotes and observations aimed at informing and entertaining the reader. It also aims to show how cricket gives examples of how the law and morality shape our lives. [274pp]
