Description:

Starting in 1996, Bob Woolmer and Tim Noakes discussed the idea of writing down the knowlegde about Cricket Bob had gleaned over the years so that people might better understand the game. They stressed not only to reinforce the basics of the game, but gave further insight to those who aspire to play, watch and teach the game, and share the passion it invokes. Over ten years the manual was put together, in parts rewritten several times in order to catch up with the development in this sport. Perfectly illustrated, with techniques demonstrated by some of Bob's most famous proteges, this book has become an invaluable source of insider knowledge, behind-the-scenes insights, and tips from some of the game's greatest players and characters. It gives unique insights on mental skills, batting, bowling, fielding and wicket-keeping techniques illustrated in dynamic photo sequences, philosophies on coaching, captaincy and game strategy as well as on the science and medicine of cricket.
