"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

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.
Top Customer Reviews
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!
