Mid-Wicket Takes is a collection that certainly would fight for a place in any kind of cricket fan’s affections...the essays in the book cover the entire range of skills: bowling, batting, fielding, wicket keeping and captaincy. They question preconceived notions and stand a few clichés on their head with a lightness of touch and much finesse. The book works at several levels. For everyone who remembers an age where  days cricket of all forms was central, it is a dip into nostalgia combined with an acceptance and appreciation of the modern. Written with the passion of a fan and knowledge of a cricketer, Mid-Wicket Tales: From Trumper to Tendulkar is for all genuine lovers of cricket from every cricketing nation. It celebrates cricket in all its hues and brings alive the rich history, romance and technical nuances of the game, where diligent research and analysis is blended with rare and interesting anecdotes.  Even as the essays reflect the authors' passion for the game, there is a perspective, balance and tolerant objectivity right through the book. Thus, if they lavish praise on Rahul Dravid for his batting or the wondrous all-round skills of Garry Sobers or the incomparable slip catching of Bobby Simpson, they also admire the less successful test cricketers, for there are just a few thousand test players in 137 years of international cricket.  It is the sort of book one can reach out and spend 30 minutes on any number of occasions, just like meeting old friends.
