Ground Rules - Signed VIP Edition

Ground Rules - £1000 (Signed VIP Edition)

These 25 limited edition, individually numbered, leather-bound VIP copies of Ground Rules were signed by 13 of the current England Cricket team, days before embarking on this year's Ashes tour. £800 from each book will be donated to the World Food Programme's Pakistan Flood Appeal.

About the Book
Written by leading cricket authorities, Ground Rules provides an account of international cricket at the world's major Test Match grounds, and features all 10 Test-playing nations. It provides a fascinating, colourful account of the players, matches and incidents that have shaped the history of Test cricket at each ground.

Beautifully illustrated with more than 200 large format colour images from leading cricket photographers (including Patrick Eager and Graham Morris) the book also boasts a fascinating compilation of Wisden statistics - including hundreds of scorecards from Test Matches dating from the birth of international cricket.

The 25 VIP editions have been signed by thirteen members of the England team: Stuart Broad, Steven Finn, Graeme Swann, James Anderson, Tim Bresnan, Chris Tremlett, Jonathan Trott, Eoin Morgan, Steven Davies, Matt Prior, Andrew Strauss, Ian Bell and Alistair Cook.

The Pakistan Appeal
21 million people – one eighth of Pakistan's population - have been affected by the flooding crisis, which hit in July and has been described as the worst in the country's history. Much of the region remains underwater and, with insufficient resources to feed and shelter the millions of displaced people, thousands more will die from starvation, malnutrition and disease.

The United Nations' World Food Programme is appealing for £371 million to provide desperately-needed food assistance. Without increased support from the international community, WFP may be forced to reduce rations, jeopardising efforts to provide Pakistan's hungry with a bridge from crisis to recovery.
