The 2010 New Zealand Cricket Almanack

Edited by Ian Smith and Francis Payne It must be sum­mer as I’m re­view­ing a sec­ond cricket book this month.

This one is not ex­actly a book you sit down and read through, rather the almanack cov­ers the 2009/2010 crick­et­ing sea­son with score­cards from ev­ery in­ter­na­tional and pro­vin­cial game fea­tur­ing New Zealand teams.

Con­sid­er­ing the present state of New Zealand cricket it’s some­what com­fort­ing to look back through this book to a time when New Zealand (only 12 months ago) was rou­tinely win­ning in­ter­na­tional matches.

If there’s any­thing you wanted to know about the last sea­son of cricket this is the book for you.
