Dan Liebke’s Wasted Review of Cricket – 2022 Print Pre-Order Request




Note: This is an expression of interest in getting a copy of the (very) limited edition print run of the book. The print copy will cost in the order of twenty Australian dollars (plus postage), can be autographed, and will be supplied on a first-come, first-served basis.

Also, if you purchase an ebook version of the book, then that cost will be subtracted from any later print cost.

For the past year, after just about every day’s cricket I watched, I wrote a report card on the day’s play for my patrons (over at patreon.com/liebcricket, of course).

Those matches included pretty much every game the Australian men and women played (time zone pending, of course), along with most of England’s Test summer.

When you combine those various report cards together, you get this book – my wasted review of cricket in 2022 (more precisely, October 2021 to September 2022).

  • Men’s Ashes
  • Women’s Ashes
  • The Death of Shane Warne (including both a tribute to Shane Warne, the cricketer and, for balance, a timeline of my frustrations with Shane Warne, the commentator)
  • Women’s ODI World Cup
  • Benaud-Qadir Trophy
  • England v New Zealand Test Series
  • Warne-Muralitharan Trophy
  • Pataudi Trophy (England v India Test match)
  • Commonwealth Games
  • Australia v Zimbabwe Men’s ODI series
  • Chappell-Hadlee Trophy

A detailed, 300 page, recap of my cricket watching over the year, all done in what critics sneeringly refer to as my ‘unique style’. Think of it as like if a circus clown tried to drink Wisden through one of those curly straws.

Enjoy reliving cricket in 2022.
