About this product
- DescriptionThis book looks at the science behind cricket, not just physics, explaining how many different branches of science come together on a cricket field. This is done in a way that should be understandable to the intelligent layman and to people with a basic grounding in science, but illustrative to people with a deeper understanding of the principals.
