"Cricket Yesterday & Today" is a unique celebration of cricket, where the days of James Lilywhite, WG Grace and Victor Trumper are shown alongside the era of modern icons Kevin Pietersen, Shane Warne and Sachin Tendulkar. In this unique photographic sports book, cricket is shown in a new light as historic photographs are shown alongside images from today, on a similar theme, so first Ashes tour is shown opposite today's squad of superstars, the stiff upright delivery stride of spinner Albert Trott against the 'frog in a blender' action of Paul Adams, the classical Wally Hammond cover drive compared to Tillakaratne Dilshan's Dilscoop. Each pair of photographs is discussed in a lively, intelligent and anecdote-packed style by a celebrated cricket writer Ian Valentine.
