Publisher's Summary

What I Love About Cricket is the story of a summer when a ‘master’ cricket obsessive teaches his novice ‘pupil’ the wisdom of the game. Sandy Balfour is cast as the supposed master and his 16-year-old daughter’s new boyfriend is the reluctant pupil.
This beginner’s guide to the infuriatingly perverse game of cricket is a love letter addressed both to those who utterly fail to understand it and to those who need reminding why they fell in love in the first place. What unfolds is wonderfully observed and very funny and as much about fathers and daughters, love and life, as it is about cricket.

Quietly brilliant

A lovely book that will appeal equally to cricket lovers and fathers of daughters. This gentle tale quietly draws you in. I didn't want the book to end... Clive Mantle is an ideal narrator.

Not what it says on the tin!

I found this book very strange. It should be about cricket but there is very little about the sport and a lot about nothing very much. I did not enjoy it and feel quite cheated
