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.

May be best left to the collectors and the cricket buffs, and even they may struggle to get through this one.
