Frith on Cricket is a broad collection of the best of David Frith's writings on the game's history, personalities and controversies. It draws from almost 40 years of description, investigation and comment on cricket's great occasions, the upheavals and the colourful personalities who have made the headlines, as well as some of the lesser-knowns.

The range is wide, taking in the earliest contests right up to England's victory over Australia in 2009; listening to a Test match through the night; tracking down legends such as Wilfred Rhodes and the long-lost Aboriginal fast bowler Eddie Gilbert; arguing with Don Bradman; visiting Madame Tussauds waxworks; training with the county champions; insights into the radio and television commentators; journeying to all the Test - playing countries and World Cups; firing off editorials condemning brutality and maladministration; watching women play at Lord's for the first time; cricket memorabilia and auctions; on autograph-hunting; searching for cricket on film; investigating cricketers' suicides; book reviews; the South Africa issue; some major obituaries; fun cricket; and even a little verse ...

All this supported by a quality foreword by the esteemed former Times cricket correspondent John Woodcock, and a wide range of illustrations.
