Guest Review: Greatest Moments of Cricket By Ralph Dellor and Stephen Lamb

Little Book of the Greatest Moments of Cricket is a 96-page hardback book written by Ralph Dellor and Stephen Lamb. A collection of articles celebrating the most iconic moments in cricketing history, it is sure to bring back memories of the most emotional events, as well as remembering those events that stretch further back into the golden age of cricket. Whether it is the Ashes or other memorable matches against some of England's greatest rivals such as the West Indies, Sri Lanka or South Africa, this is a fantastic celebration of cricket.

Review: This is a collection of 30 short articles, each describing an iconic event in the history of cricket up to the 2005 Ashes series between England and Australia. Each article is accompanied by high-quality photographs, although occasionally these do not match exactly the text.

The games featured cover Test Matches, One Day Internationals and a one day County game. The choice of articles is very subjective, and is heavily weighted towards more recent times. For example, although the initial article describes the first reference, in 1882, to the Ashes in a mock newspaper obituary, only 8 more articles feature matches played prior to the 1970s.

This book will be of interest to cricket lovers, with many photographs of players from yesteryear, and will generate discussion about which moments should have been included.
