A heart-warming short story that will make us laugh and cry, and remind us why the little things in our lives are so important, from one of Australia?s best-loved writers, William McInnes. Lachlan and his dad head down to the oval for the under-twelves cricket game, as they do most Saturdays in the season; it?s part of their routine. Lachlan hopes he?ll get some runs. His dad is happy to stand on the sidelines with the other cricket parents, drink coffee and cheer the team on. But this weekend, the other team?s umpire had to work, so Lachlan?s dad has to do the boys a favour and stand in out in the middle. He also hopes his son will gets some runs as he umpires the under-twelves, but most of all, he wants Lachlan to do his best by the game and walk tall at the end of the day, knowing that cricket was the winner.
The latest book "You Must Win" contains the similar subject of humans should get freed from the Cage of Theology or Dogmatism. My Contention is that "The Earth will be its own when heavens are destroyed. The book Human Achievement contain the same message, first Know thyself" then only you can know the world, your society, your fellow being, your kith and kins. I wish that the Book would enlighten the reader with an advise "that when we know nothing of first Principle, it is truly extravagant to define God, Angels, Heavens and minds to know precisely why god formed world when we do not know why we pray and raise our arms at our will" It advocates that Society is a growth in time, not syllogism in Logic and when the past is out through the door, it comes in at the windows. It guides to show precisely by what changes we can diminish misery and injustice in the world in which we actually we live. A real Human who owns Humanity would automatically reject the story of "Adam and Eve" Let us live what are provided with and regarding the growth of Human life both physically and psychologically let us leave the matter to Scientists and to socialists. Socialist concern must be to lead a life peacefully, ethically, contently after attaining bask biological and social needs and this may contended as my message as an author to the readers in particular and humanity in general.
Why is Royal Challengers Bangalore one of the worst-performing teams in the Indian Premier League (IPL), despite having batsman like A.B. de Villiers and Chris Gayle, and being captained by Virat Kohli? On the other hand, why is Chennai Super Kings (CSK) one of the best-performing teams, despite boasting fewer superstars and an ageing M.S. Dhoni as captain? The secret could lie in the teams' captaincy styles. But more importantly, it lies in the way T20 teams plan, strategize and build themselves around a core group, which CSK has done. In Cricket 2.0: Inside the T20 Revolution, Tim Wigmore and Freddie Wilde take us on a whirlwind tour of the cricket format that has taken the world by storm. From its inception, when T20 was accepted by a narrow vote of the Marylebone Cricket Club, to its current global popularity, from its original superstar Chris Gayle to newcomers like Rashid Khan and Sandeep Lamichhane, T20 has become a phenomenon that has resurrected the game of cricket. From the sunny beaches of Trinidad and Tobago, which gave the world a West Indian team feared by its contemporaries, to the raucous stadiums of the IPL, today one of the world's most valuable sport tournaments, from India's original rejection of T20 to ultimately embracing it, signalling a shift in world cricket, Wigmore and Wilde break down how T20 has changed the game entirely, and why it may be the future of cricket.

This book covers a broad range of topics about the cricket from its development, regeneration, physiology, nervous system, and behavior with remarkable recent updates by adapting the new, sophisticated molecular techniques including RNAi and other genome editing methods. It also provides detailed protocols on an array of topics and for basic experiments on the cricket.While the cricket has been one of the best models for neuroethological studies over the past 60 years, it has now become the most important system for studying basal hemimetabolous insects. The studies of Gryllus and related species of cricket will yield insight into evolutionary features that are not evident in other insect model systems, which mainly focus on holometabolous insects such as Drosophila, Tribolium, and Bombyx. Research on crickets and grasshoppers will be important for the development of pest-control strategies, given that some of the most notorious pests also belong to the order Orthoptera. At the same time, crickets possess an enormously high “food conversion efficiency”, making them a potentially important food source for an ever-expanding human population.This volume provides a comprehensive source of information as well as potential new applications in pest management and food production of the cricket. It will inspire scientists in various disciplines to use the cricket model system to investigate interesting and innovative questions.

Neville Cardus described how one majestic stroke-maker 'made music' and 'spread beauty' with his bat. Between two world wars, he became the laureate of cricket by doing the same with words. In The Great Romantic, award-winning author Duncan Hamilton demonstrates how Cardus changed sports journalism for ever. While popularising cricket - while appealing, in Cardus' words to people who 'didn't know a leg-break from the pavilion cat at Lord's'- he became a star in his own right with exquisite phrase-making, disdain for statistics and a penchant for literary and musical allusions. Among those who venerated Cardus were PG Wodehouse, John Arlott, Harold Pinter, JB Priestley and Don Bradman. However, behind the rhapsody in blue skies, green grass and colourful characters, this richly evocative biography finds that Cardus' mother was a prostitute, he never knew his father and he received negligible education. Infatuations with younger women ran parallel to a decidedly unromantic marriage. And, astonishingly, the supreme stylist's aversion to factual accuracy led to his reporting on matches he never attended. Yet Cardus also belied his impoverished origins to prosper in a second class-conscious profession, becoming a music critic of international renown. The Great Romantic uncovers the dark enigma within a golden age.
Village Idiots? is a series of essays on cricket generally (and English village cricket and customs in particular) by an Australian who has played the game for over 30 years in Melbourne, Singapore and London. The vehicle for these observations is the author's adopted English Village cricket team in Henley-on-Thames, with whom he has played for three years and scaled the giddy heights of Vice Captaincy. It contains reflections on staples like Afternoon Tea, English Weather, English Pubs and Touring. It also explores more 'contentious' subjects like Declaration Cricket, Women Supporters, the LBW Law and Captaincy - all in a light hearted way. This book should appeal to lovers of English quaintness and quirkiness in general, and cricket in particular. It is a gentle mocking from one of the 'Old Enemy', who has penetrated (and become besotted with) middle England, and English village cricket, and bravely attempts an 'outside, in' look at modern England through the prism of one of its oldest traditions. 'I enjoyed the spirit hugely...It is quite charming' Jeremy Paxman 'A cracking read' Henley Standard 'A joy and a delight' Sir Roger Carrick (former British High Commissioner to Australia)

Gulu wears his passion on his sleeve and on the numerous TV debates in which we have featured together I have found we are on the same wavelength when it comes to issues and controversies concerning cricket. This book contains an impressive array of Gulu’s articles on a wide range of sports with an emphasis on cricket which is so close to Gulu’s heart. There are numerous articles on the India Premier League in this collection stretching back to its origins and the reader can judge for himself how perceptive Gulu has been on this vexing issue. On this we share common ground and many of our dire predictions on what we both consider a cancer in the game have proved uncannily correct. Besides controversies, there is much to celebrate as well in this anthology and I wish both the book and its author all the best while looking forward to another such collection 20 years down the line! —from the Foreword ofBishan Singh Bedi
