What Is a Googly?

Author(s): Robert Eastaway


The Mysteries of Cricket Explained Have you ever been in the position of watching a game of cricket with friends who know or pretend to know a lot more about the game than you do? Are you a cricket widow who would perhaps like to converse more fluently (or even at all!) with a cricket-loving mate? Do you get your silly mid offs confused with your short legs? And why do cricketers rub the ball on their trousers? This laymans guide will answer all your questions as it demystifies the jargon, explains where cricket came from, what happens on the field, what the tactics are and the do's and donts of being a spectator. If youve ever made a fool of yourself in the pavilion, wondered how to tell whos winning (or even how long the match is going to go on for), then Rob Eastaway's guide is just the book for you!
