About ten years ago, I scribbled a number of drawings, solely for my own enjoyment, satirically depicting the curious terminology that constantly permeates the game of Cricket.
Those in the world who are not indigenous to the sport's domiciles are constantly baffled by the confusing descriptions of various activities occurring in the conduct of each game.
This book is a humorous depiction of a possible explanation of many of the unique expressions which seem to be fully understood by the game's pundits and which appear to be in some other language than English to the uninformed masses.
This book is a satire - please don't take my nonsense seriously.
