The Anatomy of Modern Cricket

An engaging tour of the modern game from an award-winning journalist and the economist who co-authored the bestselling Soccernomics.

Why does England rely on private schools for their batters – but not their bowlers? How did demographics shape India’s rise? Why have women often been the game’s great innovators? Why does South Africa struggle to produce Black Test batters? And how does the weather impact who wins?

Crickonomics explores all of this and much more – including how Jayasuriya and Gilchrist transformed Test batting but T20 didn’t; English cricket’s great missed opportunity to have a league structure like football; why batters are paid more than bowlers; how Afghanistan is transforming German cricket; what the rest of the world can learn from New Zealand and even the Barmy Army’s importance to Test cricket.

This incisive book will entertain and surprise all cricket lovers. It might even change how you watch the game.
