Cricket Lovers Unite!

The Black Caps’ purple patch is coinciding with cricket’s worldwide resurgence. But how did this sport with its antiquated code of conduct and specialised lingo capture hearts from Melbourne to Madras and Aberdeen to Auckland?

Steven Carroll fictionalised the effect of the 1960 West Indies cricket team on a small Australian town in The Gift of Speed, while England-born Harry Ricketts has penned a guide for newcomers, How to Catch a Cricket Match. They join Joseph Romanos, who has written about Brendon McCullum’s 2014 triple century at the Basin Reserve and Lou Vincent’s admission of match fixing.

*TECT Earlybird offer ends 7 October
