    (Before you ask)
    The sport of cricket has long held a special place in Anglophone culture, and a specialised niche in English literature. Cricket is the official summer sport in England, and it is widely known as the “gentleman’s game”, owing to the unique culture of the sport and its emphasis on ideals such as grace, sportsmanship, character and complexity.

    Cricket has therefore often attracted the attention (and in some cases, fandom) of the literati – Lamb, Hazlitt and Leigh Hunt were all players of the game – and some of the greatest English writers have written about cricket.

    This was particularly true in the era before the Second World War, for example, during the Edwardian era, and in the 1920s and 1930s.
