Product description

From the Back Cover


So said Lord MacLaurin as the England touring party headed for the Caribbean in January 1998 – and who could blame him? Certainly not the inimitable 'Tuffers' himself, English cricket's most notoriously accident-prone tourist, who freely admits to having been in more scrapes abroad than the rest of his team-mates put together.
In his revealing behind -the -scenes diary of the West Indies tour, Phil Tufnell, with the help of journalist Peter Hayter records the ups and downs of that series, including the farcical abandoned test in Jamaica and the nail-biting (or in his case fag-smoking) victory in Trinidad -not forgetting his own batting heroics in Guyana when he helped save the follow-on.

With his trademark dry humour Tufnell describes the mood swings in the dressing-room as the tour moves on to Barbados and Antigua and the England supporters arrive in force. In between he entertains us with his unique observations on love, life and net practice.

Move over Bridget Jones, Tuffners has arrived.

About the Author

Phil Tufnell has played 23 times for England in a Test career spanning eight years. In the final Ashes Test of last summer, he took a career-best eleven wickets, earning him a place on the 1998 West Indies tour. He is married to Lisa and has a baby daughter, Poppy.

Peter Hayter is the cricket correspondent of the Mail on Sunday. He collaborated with Ian Botham in writing his bestselling autobiography and, most recently, The Botham Report.
