It is so funny, touching and totally absorbing. Even if cricket isn't your thing, I feel sure you would still thoroughly enjoy this book. But, if you have ever played the wonderful game of cricket, this is a must for you. You will not put it down, believe me.
I simply did not want this book to end, so do yourself a big favour and buy this book. You will love it. As a previous reviewer has said, it deserves far more than five stars..........

Suspect MS is a better player than he gives himself credit for.
Good holiday read with a number of "been there, done that, got the Owzat tin" moments.
Amusing & easy to read. I'm not remotely interested in cricket, but that doesn't affect my enjoyment of the book in any way. Some great observations of times now gone. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Felicity Morte
