Death of a Gentleman (Sam Collins, Jarrod Kimber, 2015)

Two cricket fans who became journalists, Old Etonian Sam Collins and larrikin Aussie Jarrod Kimber, from opposite ends of the social and geographic scale but united by their love of Test cricket, join forces to try to help save it.

They embark on a journey across the cricketing empire to find the answer to the question ‘Who really cares about Test cricket?’ They talk to the players, ex-players, broadcasters, journalists, administrators and fans. They venture, often uninvited, into boardrooms, offices, hotel rooms and even the home of cricket itself, Lord’s, looking for answers as to who is responsible, and what are they doing to save their game.
