You'll be riveted as you learn how an innocent bunny rabbit managed to cause fiery carnage on the pitch and how the amorous activities of a field full of cows and bulls stopped play. This book dishes up a veritable cornucopia of cricketing curiosities from around the globe. From remarkable and history-making feats on the pitch to quirky and unusual cricket-related events away from it, The Bumper Book of Cricket Useless Information provides a wealth of quotes, trivia and absolute facts guaranteed to entertain both young and old. Author Marc Dawson has become his own 12th man for this, his twelfth, the culmination of a 27-year fascination for cricket which was triggered by England's thirlling three-run win in the 250th Test between Australia and England in 1982.
