An Island’s Eleven

by Nicholas Brookes

The Story of Sri Lankan Cricket

We all know the story of the 1996 World Cup: how a team of unfancied amateurs rose from obscurity and changed the way the game was played. Yet the lore of Sri Lankan cricket stretches back much further. An Island’s Eleven tells this story in full for the first time, focusing on the characters and moments that have shaped the game forever.
