    A tour de force of scholarship and storytelling. There have been plenty of good books on Sri Lankan cricket, but few as comprehensive or as entertaining as ‘An Island’s Eleven’. Ambitious in scope and lovingly compiled, it’s packed with anecdotes, insights and surprises. An enthralling read — Shehan Karunatilaka

     

    Nicholas Brookes has filled a gap in cricket literature. This wonderful book, based on compendious research, tells the great story of Sri Lankan cricket, how it began in schools and colleges and emerged to become one of the great forces in world cricket. It is more than a cricket book: it is also indispensable for understanding Sri Lanka itself. This book should be in the library of every serious cricket lover. It has been written with real passion and understanding. A great debut from a serious sports historian — Peter Oborne ― bestselling author of Wounded Tiger: A History of Cricket in Pakistan

     

    This is an impeccably researched and beautifully told story, enhanced with anecdotes and first-hand accounts, of the rise of Sri Lankan cricket from its colonial roots to becoming world beaters with some of the greatest cricketers to play the game — Mike Selvey
