Book Description

A geographical history of cricket in England and Wales in a global context.


'A fascinating book on the effects of geography and climate on the sport ... Firmly part of the emerging field of sports geography, this book will certainly be a welcome addition to collections in social geography generally as well as those focusing on the sociology of sport.' - Choice

'If you are a dedicated cricket follower who believes that the weather affects results and the way the game is played, this book is a must for you. Rain Stops Play is sure to get many deckchair fans recording the connection between results and the weather.' - Sunday Times
