Default More Than a Game: The Story of Cricket's Early Years,by John Major

This is the book from former British prime minister.Hope when Howard retires,he writes one too.

I was touched by the fact that after resigning,he went straight to the cricket field,thats what you call passion.

excerpt: -

"There have been several previous attempts to cover cricket's early years; most have ended up being dry and too academic. Major has helped the history of the game he loves by sidestepping that pitfall, even if it means offering relatively little that's new, and producing a thorough - as you might expect - and generally well-researched book."

good dig Shafin. his book sounds more interesting than he ever was as PM, and i'm curious to give it a read.
