All Round View
Khan, Imran
ISBN: 0701133309
Chatto & Windus 1988  1988 
  8vo hardcover 210pp index, b/w illus. very good / very good d/w. The author, now 35, is one of cricket's greatest all-rounders and the retiring captain of Pakistan's team. He tells of his life and the game he loves: from his childhood in Lahore, to his student days at Oxford (where he led the University team), his time at Worcester and thence to Sussex, culminating in his captaincy of Pakistan. A self portrait emerges of a man who has spent fifteen years at the top: years which have wrought changes - political, commercial and tactical - in the way cricket is played and promoted; changes too, in the man himself, as he reconciled his Muslim upbringing with the professional and personal pressures of being an international sportsman.

Glenn McGrath - Line and Strength: The Complete Story
McGrath, Glenn
ISBN: 9781741667196
William Heinemann Australia 2008  2008 
  8vo hardcover in d/w. 428pp very good, / Very good d/w. Inscribed & signed by author. Illustrated with photographs. From working the land in Narromine to winning cricket's World Cup three times, Glenn McGrath has always faced life with fierce determination and an unerring will to succeed, despite the odds. Now, following his retirement from international cricket, McGrath shares the story of his life - in cricket and off the field. Known as 'Pigeon', he won his baggy green cap in Perth in 1993 and went on to forge a brilliant career, retiring as cricket's most successful fast bowler with 563 Test wickets. McGrath entered Ashes folklore in 1997 when he destroyed England by taking 8 for 38 at Lord's, and he even scored a Test half-century with the bat. With leg spinner Shane Warne, he formed the most devastating bowling combination in Test history. Glenn McGrath's most meaningful achievements, however, have been off the field. With his wife Jane, who battled breast and bone cancers, he established the McGrath Foundation, a major fundraiser for and supporter of people with breast cancer. In the book, in their own words, the McGrath's discussed their ongoing battles with the disease.
