    Although references to cricket are scant before the 17th century, it is clear that the game had long been played when a report of a 'great match' in Sussex was published in 1697. Tracing the game from its humble origins to the modern professional sport, this thoughtful and well-researched history is also the story of English culture: the manners, hierarchies and politics of a society mirrored in an idiosyncratic game and its players.
