A timely release before the start of the season, Compleat Cricket: eight days in September is Norwich-based author Tim Cawkwell’s latest book and a lovely account of the closing rounds of the 2017 County Championship. Essex had already clinched the County Championship and so all eyes were drawn towards the bottom of Division One and the scramble between five teams to avoid relegation.
