Recommended to Marco by: Richie Benaud recommends this book in one of his books.
For those interested in the Umpiring and Scoring of Cricket matches, this book contains everything you could be looking for. Unfortunately the way it is written, its as boring as hell to read, hence why is took me 6 weeks to read it. While it contains everything you could want to know about Umpiring and Scoring, it is hard to read more then a few pages at a time. May be best left to the collectors and the cricket buffs, and even they may struggle to get through this one.
