From the cover: Indoor cricket is a whole new ball game. It started in Australia but has now been imported into Britain, where new stadiums are opening every year. It appeals to everyone from all walks of life and regardless of age and sex: non-cricketers have taken to its fast, action-packed excitement, while players of the outdoor game use it to sharpen up their cricketing skills.

Avril Starling and Megan Lear were both English Test players and are closely involved in the expansion of the game as managers of the indoor cricket stadium in Wellingborough, Northants. Their book is a full introduction to the history and rules of the game. Indoor cricket requires very special techniques, and these are comprehensively covered. There are also chapters on tactics and on practice. This fully illustrated book is the best possible introduction to an exciting, fresh game which is here to stay.
