'Spoof Victorian cricket annuals were funnier when I were playing,' is the remark bogusly attributed to Geoffrey Boycott in response to this book. Authentically styled as a late Victorian journal, it purports to have been published in 1896 but is in fact a parody that cleverly mixes cricketing nostalgia with the modern game and pokes fun at the characters of the sport old and new.
