A hundred years on from their last match, a team of modern-day authors has been assembled to continue the tradition in a nationwide tour in search of the perfect day's cricket.

Over the course of a summer they played over a dozen matches in some of England's most spectacular and historic grounds. In the book, each player contributes a chapter about one of their fixtures, using a match report as a starting point for an essay on cricket and its appeal.
