Australia Story of A Cricket Country

Australia Story of A Cricket Country edited by Christian Ryan, Hardie Grant $89.95

Melbourne journalist Christian Ryan has created the ultimate cricket book in this incredible tome which is certain to thrill any cricket fan.

It's not just another almanac, this is an homage to the Australian game with eulogies and deep thinking discussions from the world's top cricket writers plus rare archive photography of our best ever players.

Possibly the most fascinating chapter is the once-in-a-lifetime poll of 121 strong jury to discover our five greatest cricket players.

Number one unsurprisingly is Don Bradman although interestingly five voters did leave him out.

A very close second however is Shane Warne who on the pitch and off it seems, is irresistible.
