A new illustrated edition of the classic book of cricketing advice. Foreword by former England Test cricketer and bestselling author Derek Pringle. The advice found in Don’ts for Cricketers was originally printed in 1906 and contains hundreds of snippets of entertaining, timeless and amusing advice for cricketers of all abilities.

The content, ranging from technique and equipment to etiquette on the field, provides a fascinating snapshot of life in early twentieth-century Britain.

Advice includes:

  • ‘Don’t be in two minds about how you are going to play the ball, for that way madness lies.’
  • ‘Don’t be sulky or sad if your bowling is punished or your captain takes you off bowling when you want to continue.’
  • ‘Don’t forget the motto of that famous old cricket club, I Zingari: “Keep your promise, keep your temper, keep your wicket up.”‘
