Gideon Haigh has had a front-row seat during that decline and Uncertain Corridors collects the best of his despatches, narrating the collapse of cricket's traditional structures and the uneasy and troubled evolution of its new order, through the stories of Michael Clarke, Ricky Ponting, Mike Hussey, Shane Warne and others.As the game grows richer and crazier worldwide, thanks to the financial might of the Board of Control for Cricket in India and the unstoppable spread of T20, this is the essential guide - sports journalism at its most informed, passionate and uncompromisingly independent.'The skill of writer Gideon Haigh is that he makes his detours into the ignored corners of cricket as fascinating as his insights into the games biggest names and issues.'
