A history of cricket at Cambridge

On Fenner's Sward Summary

On Fenner's Sward: A History of Cambridge University Cricket Club by Giles Phillips

Many of the great names of world cricket have represented the famous old university. In recent years, John Crawley and Mike Atherton have gone on to play for England, while earlier stars include K.S. Duleepsinhji, Phil Edmonds, Arthur Gilligan, Steve James, R. Subba Row, K.S. Ranjitsinhji, Tony Lewis and Sammy Woods. In all, Cambridge has produced nearly eighty Test cricketers (more than most of the county sides) and, remarkably, over twenty England captains. Published to mark the 250th anniversary of first recorded game that the university played (against the Gentlemen of Eton), this book documents one of the most historically significant and prestigious institutions of cricket. Meticulous research, rare illustrations and a foreword by Ted Dexter, a famous Cambridge blue and former president of the MCC, make this book appealing to anyone with an interest in the great game.
