IN his time, the fastest bowler and one of the most attractive batsmen in the world, Learie Constantine has entered the ranks of the Best Sellers with “Cricket in the Sun”.  Now he writes another smash-hit, charmingly light-hearted, but with all the vigour that earned him the name of “Electric Heels” when he was out on the middle.
Through the book runs a fascinating account of an imaginary Cricket Carnival at which a team of Old Timers, led by The Champion himself, plays a match against the author’s choice of the eleven best players of all nations whom he has met.”
