LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Allen & Unwin: Allen & Unwin, 2004. Full of brigands and bogans, legends and sledgends, Legends of the Baggy Green is an acerbic commentary on the codes and manners of cricket behaviour. Part social history, part blooper tape, this book takes sports comedy back to where it all began. The sins of modern cricket sledging, chucking, match-fixing, plus the heinous practice of putting the ball in the freezer to make it bounce higher are all here, along with a rogues' gallery that includes everyone from Horseshoe' Herby Collins to Salim The Rat' Malik. From the watermelon presented to Syd Gregory to the brown paper bag full of cash that was given to the late Hansie Cronje, there is full disclosure in Legends of the Baggy Green, as well as comment on the commentators who have observed cricket's transit from Lord's to Hollywood, and from the Gabbatoir to the Elysian, desalinated fields of Sharjah.The outburst by Oo-ah' Glenn McGrath in the West Indies in 2003 put cricket behaviour on front pages all over the world. As is usual with McGrath, women sighed, men admired and boofheads fumed, but what was really going on? What the hell has happened to the game we loved and respected? There is ample scope for both humour and criticism here, and playwright, satirist and genuine cricket tragic' Alex Buzo has sharpened his pen to provide plenty of both.<p>. Paperback. New.
