Came across a very 'nice' fiction novel about cricket.
"The Cricket Match" by Hugh De Selincourt is about a cricket team
in a past***village in England. The type of place that probably
never existed but we wish did. It is about a young lad who can't
control his enthusiasm for the game and all the activities that players
go through on game day. Like getting up early and looking out the
window to check the weather, going early to field to setup the pitch,
polishing your favourite boots etc... you know the things you do.
Check it out.

Yes, it's probably the best-known novel about cricket, and IMHO the best.
