    David Boon autobiography?

    I will be ordering a few cricket books this week and being a nostalgic fan of cricketers from 80's and 90's, was thinking of purchasing David Boon's autobiography. But first I want your expert views. How do you rate it?

    In fact there are two - you have a choice of 'In the Firing Line' from 1993 and 'Under the Southern Cross' from three years later - not read either, so won't comment on the quality of the contents

    Sorry Ive just read one and it was ages ago. Ive read the one where Boon on the cover is playing a scrumptious leg glance.

    Is it filled with anecdotes/yarns especially from the memorable '89 Ashes tour?

    Captained Durham.
    He (Alastair Cook) and his family are very much the sort of people we want the England captain and his family to be
