    Blood, Sweat and Treason

    Martin's fantastic book review and feature of Henry Olonga's just released autobiography.

    Martin did an amazing amount of work here, so please show some appreciation.

    Divine intervention or not, it's an incredible tale. Can a greater consequence have ever rested on the outcome of a cricket match? Another tour de force, Martin!

    That chapter is great i'll be ordering a copy of this book when i get home. It is an interesting event and I'm sure unless you knew what was going on in Zimbabwe at the time, the outside world has no clue what could have happened to him at the time.

    Amazing chapter. Wow. Talk about a meaningful match....

    And we give thugs like Bvute a voice at the ICC table. Disgraceful.

    Former Zimbabwe fast bowler, Henry Olonga, recently released his autobiography Blood, Sweat and Treason, the first published by a Zimbabwean Test player. Martin Chandler calls it "one of the most compelling stories I have ever read" in his review on Cricketweb.

    Great stuff, Martin.

    Am I right in saying that Andre (former staff member) once conducted an interview with Henry? Is there still a link to that?
