For the third time this week, we have received the wonderful news that another Pitch Publishing book and author have been nominated for a major prize. Well done to Andrew Murtagh, author of Gentleman and Player, which has been long-listed for the prestigious Cricket Society and MCC Book of the Year Award 2018.
Vic Marks, former England and Somerset cricketer and current Observer/ Guardian cricket writer and Test Match Special commentator, chairs a panel of judges which considers books nominated by Cricket Society and MCC members. For the 2018 competition (books about cricket published during 2017 are eligible), a short list will be announced next year and the overall winner announced at an event, in the Long Room at Lord's on Wednesday 18 April 2018.
