From the United Kingdom to the British Commonwealth (including Australia, New Zealand, India, Pakistan, South Africa, and many Caribbean nations) to immigrant communities across North America, cricket is an extraordinarily popular sport. But for those unfamiliar with the game, the rules and jargon of cricket can seem baffling. This friendly guide demystifies the sport, explaining the arcane rules, defining idiosyncratic terms such as "silly point" and "late cuts," and describing the skills, equipment, and tactics people need to start playing - and winning - the game. Complete with a tour of the international cricketing scene, Cricket For Dummies is a must-have reference for fans of the sport and would-be bowlers and batsmen everywhere.
