Duncan Stone’s new book ‘Different Class: The Untold Story of English Cricket’ is both a history of cricket from the grassroots and an analysis of the roots of the sport’s attitudes to race and class. Duncan uncovers the reality of cricket behind the myth, and reveals the true story of working-class cricket in the south of England. For anyone wanting to understand English cricket’s current crisis ‘Different Class’ is essential reading.
