About

Stumped: Cricket Crosswords is a book full of wonderful cricket crosswords. 

Who is the only player to have played Test cricket for two different nations, but be born in neither of them?

Can you name the only three Test cricketers whose surnames are palindromic?

If you think you know your Warne's from your Waugh's, then this is the book for you. Easy, medium and hard questions are split up into different categories for you to Test your cricketing knowledge! We already have over 1,500 questions stored and sorted into country and format specific crosswords!

The funds raised from this campaign will be used primarily on the publishing of the book(s), as we are looking at self-publishing. The rest of the funds will go towards small scale marketing, a new website, and travel expenses, as we are looking to travel around the country to visit various cricket clubs and sell the finished book at stadiums and matches.

The project is fronted by Freddie Young and Dhiren Naidu, who met at the University of Edinburgh and bonded over their love of cricket whilst playing for the university cricket club. Having both played cricket for as long as they can remember, they are both passionate and committed cricket fans. This Kickstarter campaign has been set up and posted while watching Surrey v Essex in the 2019 County Championship at the Kia Oval. The pair run a blog called ‘The Pavilion’ in their spare time, which is mainly focussed on cricket, with other sports appearing here and there.

You can reach us on: pavilionpuzzles@gmail.com; Freddie directly on: youngfr@yahoo.com; and Dhiren directly on: dnaidu28@yahoo.com. Please don’t hesitate to contact us!

Risks and challenges

The main risk onvolved in this project is time. With Dhiren currently in full time higher education and Freddie working in a full time job, the managing of time will be fundamental to the project’s success.
