A definitive study of the History of non-racial cricket in South Africa.
Prof.Andre Odendaal has undertaken exhaustive research to ensure that cricket is not seen to be the sole domain of "Whites
" in South Africa.
He traces with sensitivity and insight the struggles of Black cricketers, particularly those from the Eastern Cape, as they sought to establish themselves and to gain recognition in a country bedevilled by the scourges of Apartheid.
The role played by outstanding individuals over many years - both as players and administrators, paints a picture of a Black population ( Indians, Malays, Coloureds included) that loved cricket and overcame innumerable obstacles to continue playing the game with such dedication and passion.
A wonderful legacy for all South African sportsmen - The Story of An African Game deserves to be placed amongst the best books written about Cricket in South Africa.
