Product Description

Product Description

A collection of the ripest, fruitiest cricket scribblings from Andrew Hughes, author of ESPNCricinfo's Long Handle Blog. Lovingly typed and satirically arranged, these pages represent a smorgasbord of cricket fun fresh from the fevered imagination of one of the world's leading purveyors of luxurious metaphors, dangerous whimsy and wild, unsubstantiated bat and ball ravings. You will uncover herein the horror of the Jesse Ryder Heresy, you will journey deep into the bowels of Michael Vaughan's wisdom, and you will learn what it is like to be stuck in a lift with Danny Morrison. So pour yourself a stiff drink, brave reader, open the pages of this electronic testament and travel to distant, exotic cricket cities of the mind, where you will discover a taste of spicy nonsense, a whiff of the indescribable and an oasis of cool, refreshing amateurism amid the endless barren desert of proper cricket writing.
