Unfortunately I found the funny lines were just too sparse for me. I am not a cricket fan, ( I know its all about cricket) but have read another book with a cricket theme "Riding to the Ashes" which I enjoyed.
If you love cricket you may well enjoy recalling the play of the 2006 India tour, but for me just too many pages to skim through.
Great stuff and I thoroughly recommend it to cricket fans and cricket casual acquaintances alike!
I did fear that it would be yet another book of forced, matey Cricket humour, but it isn't that. In fact, what you find yourself reading is an enjoyably humorous look behind the scenes that gives the reader an idea of what it is like to follow the England cricket team as a job, rather than as a fan.
Miles battles with sweltering heat, fear of being unmasked as a fraud, elusive accreditation and his bowels. But while many of the people he finds himself meeting, from ex-players to experienced journalists, turn out to be friendly and helpful, he finds himself questioning whether being paid to watch Cricket is actually all it is cracked up to be.
