You'll love this because...

Via newspaper clippings from the past, you can relive the extensive history of the England international cricket team. 

  • Personalise with any name and message
  • Handbound hardback covers
  • A4 and A3 editions available with colour pages from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1905 to the present day

Now updated with England’s utterly captivating victory, with extensive coverage of the 2019 event as it unfolded! Relive the history of cricket on the international stage through newspaper clippings in this personalised English Cricket book. With coverage beginning in 1905, this timeless piece of cricket memorabilia takes you back over a century, revisiting all the key moments from Lord’s, Edgbaston, The Oval and beyond, right up until the present day.

Despite the first record of an England national cricket team stretching back as far as 1739, success on the world stage has proven elusive for the most part. Often the bridesmaids, England have been runners-up at the Cricket World Cup three times, in 1979, 1987 and 1992, and in the ICC Champions Trophy in 2004 and 2013. Still, there have been some great moments along the way. In 1938, England hit 903 runs in a Test match against Australia, with 364 of them coming from Len Hutton, both records which stand to this day. The team’s highest One-Day tally came a lot more recently, as they went 444/3 from 50 overs against Pakistan in 2016. And in 2005, England registered perhaps their most famous Ashes victory, as Messrs Flintoff, Pietersen, Vaughan, Trescothick and Strauss, along with numerous others, combined to put an end to almost twenty years of Australian dominance.

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

Very disappointing

Very disappointing, looks poor as a gift. Small, not very attention grabbing. Story seems good but appearance let’s entire book down if you are gifting it. It arrived with a small bent corner

Amazing

Amazing service and fast delivery!

Matthew Greene Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 11 October

The book I got is great

The book I got is great, it just is a little disconcerting that although the address for this company is listed on Long Island, the book comes from the United Kingdom. This should be explicit.
