I first got to know Haigh s writing from columns in the Guardian and whilst this is an early work it is a pleasure to read such a well informed and devoted writer about cricket who does not treat it with sacred reverence at book length The lack of genuflection he has in common with Kerry Packer the apparent villian of the piece whose audacious redefining of cricket in the 70s determined the destiny of the game around the world As Haigh notes Packer filled his boots at the same time having worked out the differential between the cost of cricket and its potential in commercial terms with considerable nousThe writing has echoes of the standards of the genre stats pepper the stories of the matches but the really interesting part of the narrative is showing the kind of civil war it was Certainly the main players and I don t just mean the cricketers knew each other well especially by the end when the ACB finally surrendered to the corporates of PBL The fraternity of cricket clearly transgressed the boundaries the cricket authorities were heavy handed in attempting to reinforce and this in itself tells its own tale of inflexible committeemen failing to understand the shape of the game in their stewardship Personally being of similar age to Haigh I relished the recollection of some of the fantastic moments of World Series Cricket that I was addicted to as a teenager growing up in Australia As he shows the world s best cricket was being played in some unusual venues in front of only handfuls of fans of whom I was often one but it was the future of cricket and we all thought so at the time
