Cricket's greatest legends. Sport's fiercest rivalry. Wisden's fakest diaries. CrickiLeaks charges headlong onto the players' balcony and imagines 40 cricketing diaries of rare wit and invention, along with the illustrated book covers they might have inspired. Featuring spoof journal entries drawn from throughout Ashes history, CrickiLeaks reveals for the first time the innermost thoughts of the greatest cricketers of the last 129 years. And Mitchell Johnson. CrickiLeaks includes imagined diaries from players on the most recent tour (Andrew Strauss, Ricky Ponting), diaries from the all-time greats (Shane Warne, Freddie Flintoff, Sir Ian Botham, Geoffrey Boycott, Donald Bradman, W.G. Grace), as well as contributions from less obvious personalities. An irreverent and entertaining collection of Ashes diaries, CrickiLeaks finally lays to rest some of cricket's greatest mysteries: - What exactly was going through Gatting's mind as he faced the ball of the century? - Why did Ricky Ponting lose his rag with Ronald McDonald? - What really went on between Douglas Jardine and Daphne the Koala in Adelaide Zoo? A riotous and uniquely scurrilous addition to any cricket-lover's library.

More than any other sport, cricket highlights our peculiarities and quirks, our strengths and weaknesses – sporting or otherwise. It welcomes all-comers, no matter what their quirks or achievements. Cricketing Allsorts celebrates those oddities and records, and offers a lively portrait of the game and its players in all their glory and eccentricity. Presented in the form of 'top ten' lists and illustrated with photographs from through the ages, Cricketing Allsorts covers all aspects of the game, both on and off the field. It guides us through topics such as: - the top cricketing love affairs, featuring Keith Miller and Princess Margaret - the greatest bowing partnerships, including Wasim & Waqar, Laker & Lock and Ramadhin & Valentine - the best fictional cricketers, including Hooker Knight and Flashman - the most brutal bowling spells, as Donald roughs up Atherton and Ambrose mauls England - the game's most iconic fashion statements, such as Clive Lloyd's glasses and Gower's blue socks - the greatest dynasties, including the Cowdreys and the Pollocks - the most memorable sixes, featuring Dhoni, Sobers and Albert Trott - the most unlikely cricket fans, such as Barack Obama, Roger Federer and the Taliban. An engaging, witty and affectionate look at all things cricket, Cricketing Allsorts is the ultimate book for anyone who wants to know anything and everything about the game, and the perfect gift for any cricket fan.

In this weird and wonderful museum catalogue, the optician's prescription for the 1966 World Cup Russian linesman appears next to a news report of an ear-biting scandal in the Roman Gladiatorial arena, and an advert for Roger Bannister's four-minute egg timer is featured alongside Andrew Flintoff's bar bill from the 2005 Ashes celebrations. Tutenkhamen's Tracksuit ransacks the dusty lockers and forgotten corners of the world's dressing-rooms to present a unique collection of subverted reality. Satirical, surreal and completely invented, fans of every sport will enjoy this knowing and mischievous hijacking of the defining moments of popular sporting culture. The book illuminates the most famous moments, lives, personalities and controversies in sport with a unique collection of found (i.e. made-up!) objects drawn from throughout history. From match-fixing in Ancient Egypt to Twittering kiss-and-tells, no sporting stone is left unturned. The hundred objects are presented as a unique collection of sporting ephemera curated by Gideon Rupert, Acting Director of the National Museum for Sport and Fishing, Orkney. From spoof diaries, school reports, news articles and intercepted emails to postcards, seating plans, tactical diagrams and cave paintings, each tells the story of a well-known sporting event or personality in a completely irreverent way, alongside curator's notes and spurious academic references. After reading Tutenkhamen's Tracksuit, you'll never look at a museum catalogue in the same way again.
