Jimmy Cook, senior Transvaal and South Africa batsman and top run-scorer in English county cricket from 1989 to 1991, coached and taught at primary schools for many years and observed at first hand the depth of talent shown by the country's youngsters. His aims on Cook On Cricket are expertise with coaches. The three basics - Batting, bowling and fielding - are clearly and comprehensively dealt with, and illustrated with numerous line drawings. Other aspects covered include practice exercises, field placings, rules and umpiring. Emphasis is laid on the idea of playing for enjoyment as well as instilling a competitive spirit in young players. Cook On Cricket is an indispensable manual for schools and clubs alike.

The benefits to the coach are many, but above all Cook On Cricket will help him with new ideas for keeping up the interest and enthusiasm of the young players in his charge.
