Of all the rules governing sport, the laws of cricket are among the oldest. The first written rules of 1744 survive uniquely on the border of a piece of linen at the MCC Museum of Cricket. They were drawn up by certain 'Noblemen and Gentlemen' at a time when gambling on cricket matches was rife.
The 'laws' were codified to ensure a fair outcome when so much was riding on the game. The story of the evolution of these laws and how they affected the game is a fascinating and seldom told chapter in the history of cricket.Following on from the success of "The Rules of Association Football 1863" and "The Original Rules of Rugby", this book reproduces the complete text of the original laws and is illustrated with images from the unique manuscript held at the MCC as well as images of the game from the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It also includes what is thought to be the first known image of cricket dating from a fourteenth-century manuscript now in the Bodleian Library.
NEW FOR 2007
Don Kirkby is a Senior Instructor with many years experience of running courses and instructing umpires in the Laws of Cricket on behalf of the Association of Cricket Umpires and Scorers. He has played league cricket for many years, and in a number of those, he acted as captain. He also has a vast experience of umpiring at this level.
Each book contains 75 Case Scenarios and Questions separated from the Answers (with references to Law) to allow the reader to consider the probable outcome.
Code 70 : Over & Out
Code 71 : Bails & No Ball
Code 72 : The Wicket is Down.
Also available as a set of three, saving on postage - code 69.
You can proceed to pay by credit card which will add p&p
OR you can save the postage charge (within UK) by sending your cheque with order and ACU&S membership number.
The sturdy ring bound version includes finger index tabs and is printed on one side only. This enables the reader to make notes on the facing page and to insert future amendment sheets most easily.
Please be aware there is a blind spot in the computer program and it calculates postage based on the very HEAVY ring binder version. To allow for this, we show a much lower price against the comb-bound version - do not then be alarmed by the high postage calculated.
Please do not hesitate to email office[AT]AcumenBooks.co.uk to clarify this point or ask for overseas or bulk prices.
The intention is that MCC will subsequently issue individual amendment pages.
