Product Description

Review

"Chasing Sachin is a must-have for any cricket fan." --The Sun

"A hilarious, raucous and laugh-out-loud book, perfect for cricket and non-cricket fans alike." --Sam Matterface, TalkSPORT

"Quirky and self-deprecatory, hilarity ensues as Carroll-Smith sets out to achieve the impossible." --Sports Illustrated

"A hugely enjoyable read full of fun, frolics, alcohol and self-deprecating humour." --The Reverse Sweep

"Chasing Sachin takes in much more than just cricket as Carroll-Smith's amusing adventure takes many twists and turns at the behest of people he has never met and doesn't know. An excellent book for any cricket fan, we thoroughly recommend it!" --The Cricket Blog

"A laugh-a-minute book... do yourself a favour and buy a copy of Adam Carroll-Smith's Chasing Sachin" --The Full Toss

"The hilarious book from Adam Carroll-Smith chronicling his fantastic adventures in trying to fulfil his dream... a great read of a great summer containing as many hangovers as a standard Barmy Army tour. Get it in now!" --The Barmy Army

"Delightful and laugh-out-loud funny throughout, this is the sort of bizarre cricket odyssey Dave Gorman would embark upon." --Pencil Cricket Blog

About the Author

Former national newspaper sports reporter Adam has covered cricket and football around the country for the past two years. He is 27 and lives by the sea in Portsmouth. He really does love Sachin Tendulkar, Irish stout and heavily-salted pub snacks. Not necessarily in that order. A writer with an eye for the humorous and the offbeat, this is his first book.

I was recommended this book by a friend and it is a great read. Some very funny stories in there just about everyday life and growing up. I particularly loved the crazy brother (who reminds me of my own) and the mums name incident is priceless. This is a very easy read to the end and I would highly recommend for anyone who has spent time in whites.

Format: Paperback
I usually don't write reviews, but this book was very funny and nice.

Based on a childhood dream to play sport with a true sports hero, whether you like cricket or not, this story is written in a pretty humble way and the author doesn't attempt to be 'cool' at any cost. A journey full of misadventures and epic grotesque moments. I have the impression this guy could have written about anything else and still be truely funny and entertaining.

Looking forward to read the new book, which I can see will soon be published!

smart, thoughtful tribute to Sachin during the Indian tour ... 16 Oct. 2014
By J. Patrao - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
An incessantly hilarious, smart, thoughtful tribute to Sachin during the Indian tour of 2011, taking the form of the author's attempts to bowl out his childhood hero with a single delivery.

Highly recommended for all cricket fans.

8.5/10.
