Summary

A cricket statistician shares his list of the greatest players of all time, and invites you to create your own imaginary team. 
 
Everyone loves to rank sportsmen, and what fan hasn’t enjoyed picking their own teams and playing imaginary matches, using dice, cards, table-top games or computers? When it comes to cricket, countless generations of fans have argued at the school playground, dinner table, pub garden, or international match about who were the greatest players of all time. 
 
In this book players are ranked, split according to their roles. Openers, middle-order batsmen, all-rounders, wicket-keepers, fast bowlers, and slow bowlers are all selected in the same proportions in which they make up a team. 
 
In a game awash with numbers, every cricket fan knows what 99.94 and 501 relate to. Some of the numbers explored here transcend the game itself and have become part of cricket’s long historical narrative. Everyone’s list is different—so let the debates begin!

    Murray's History of Chess is regarded as the most authoritative and most comprehensive history of the game. Murray's aim is threefold: to present as complete a record as is possible of the varieties of chess that exist or have existed in different parts of the world; to investigate the ultimate origin of these games and the circumstances of the invention of chess; and to trace the development of the modern European game from the first appearance of its ancestor, the Indian chaturanga, in the beginning of the 7th century. The first part of the book describes the history of the Asiatic varieties of chess, the Arabic and Persian literature on chess, and the theory and practice of the game of shatranj. The second part is concerned with chess in Europe in the Middle Ages, its role in literature and in the moralities, and with medieval chess problems, leading up to the beginning of modern chess and the history of the modern game through to the 19th century.
