This thread should never be allowed to slip too far down IMO.
I gather someone has written a book called 'Grovel!' the story of the 1976 England - Windies series. Has anyone here or read it, or know where I might be able to get hold of a copy?
I've just found an ad for it in the Wisden Cricketer. The writer is one David Tossell (not heard of him before) and it retails at £18.99. I dare say some of the shops on the county grounds would stock it, and theres a big sports book shop in London that almost certainly would - I just wondered if anyone would recommend it. Seems a lot of money for a book I'd probably read in two days. But I have a fondness for that series (despite the scoreline) as that was when I really got into this great game.
For those of you who haven't read my cricket book yet, here, have a look, have a read, let me know. Aimed at 9-14 year olds but good for adults too...

I have a new one. England The Cricket Facts.
Rip Fardin Qayyumi, Bob Woolmer and Craig.
The best character is clearly Bradley the Zimbabwean. I'm not saying that just because he was my suggestion (thanks for putting it in). He has the best back story by far. best bit in the book is when he talks to the coach about controlling the game, and when he starts playing the reverse sweep. The book's a lot of fun, Neil.
Somebody has to...
