A Corner of Every Foreign Field is an innovative and thought-provoking take on the history of cricket, looking beyond the scorecards to the pivotal issues of class, politics, and imperialism that have shaped the game today. It charts how cricket has vied with football for power, commercial muscle, and global reach, growing from a simple boys' game in England to a modern worldwide sport. In exploring cricket's evolution, Tim Brooks calls on the views and anecdotes of greats like W.

G. Grace, Don Bradman, Viv Richards, and Virat Kohli. Along the way, he peers deep into the game's soul and poses questions on behalf of every cricket fan.

Is cricket truly global? Why did the game take root in some countries but not in others? What are the threats and opportunities for the sport? Who are the next cricket superpowers? How do you strike a balance between honouring tradition and reforming to capture the imagination of future generations? Written by an expert in the global development of cricket, the book sets out a unique vision for the future.
