Understanding cricket and cricketers has been a lifelong quest for Merv Hughes. How much can a roommate take before events deteriorate into shaving cream at ten paces? How seriously should senior players take their responsibility to train young twelfth men? What makes a good captain? Now, for the first time, Merv brings us a combination of yarns about his favorite players as well as his observations on the game. In Merv Hughes' 104 Cricket Legends, he shares his thoughts on the importance of training effectively, learning by watching how the best approach their preparation, and the qualities that make a player a champion. And he takes us through the 104 legends (teammates, opponents, and heroes) who all had an influence on the cricketer Merv became.
