Advice from the greats! Here in one place is a collection of cricket tips covering batting, bowling, fielding, wicket-keeping, strategy, mindset, tactics, fitness, and diet. All accompanied by brilliant illustrations by award-winning cartoonist John Spooner.
With contributions from former Australian and international superstars, such as Michael Clarke, Ricky Ponting, Ian Healy, Kevin Pietersen, Sachin Tendulkar, Wasim Akram, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman, Sourav Ganguly, and Waqar Younis.
‘A collection of insights from a galaxy of latter-day stars, all of whom gave generously, amounting to the sort of wisdom and lore players once became steeped in while sitting around with revered senior teammates after stumps.’

‘An important addition to any cricketer's store of “how-to” books … Jones really does reveal himself as a very good teacher.’
‘Short and succinct, with wonderful illustrations from journalist John Spooner, it pens serious thoughts in a comic book appearance, far from a monotonous monologue that most coaching manuals tend to resemble.’
The Asian Age
‘Bright and accessible … a lively and sometimes diverting read … with engaging illustrations.’
