    Lively story of early women cricketers in Australia

    In 1874, two teams of women cricketers assembled to play a cricket match in front of a rather large and enthusiastic crowd in Bendigo, Australia. Louise Zedda-Sampson tells the story in Bowl the Maidens Over: Our First Women Cricketers (Lzs Press). We gave the book to leading women’s cricket historian Rafaelle Nicholson, and her review is a pleasing mixture of a cricket fan’s enthusiasm and kindly delivered scholarly critique.
