About the Product
Scyld Berry has been covering England cricket tours since 1977, initially for The Observer and since 1993 for the Telegraph. In that time he has seen more England Tests than anyone else, nearly 500. He is also the only person to have won the top awards for both cricket journalism and cricket books.
Here, he takes us deep into the heart of each of the nine Test-playing nations he has visited, recounting tales of tours gone by, as well as his own non-cricketing encounters off the beaten track. Fascinating, funny and forthright, Berry’s talent is in not making you swear jealous revenge for the life he has lived, following cricket around the world, but instead enjoy that you can sit alongside him for an afternoon, at least in print, and hear stories that no-one else could tell.
