Rebels have always been part of English cricket. There were cricketing rebels in the 18th century, and there are still and always will be those who protest against one or another of cricket’s laws, against pay and conditions, against the game’s governance, and against the presumed rights of authority. In telling their stories, some comic, some tragic, this book also provides an account of the changing social scene out of which different acts of rebellion came.
