For three really special evenings only, or at least until I persuade him to do some more, this will be a brilliant show for cricket fans. Bumble has done it all in cricket, from playing for Lancashire and England to umpiring. He was coach of England during some turbulent times before becoming the world class commentator whose banter we enjoy today.

Despite Bumble being my first, first class wicket in 1978, we are firm friends and share a healthy sense of humour. So come prepared for some great entertainment.

Cricket: A Modern Anthology

In this wide-ranging and beautifully-produced anthology, I have chosen a wide variety of writings on the sport that has consumed my life, from the 1932/33 Ashes (Bodyline) series right up to the present day. In a series of carefully considered, thematically organised reflections, I examine the importance of their contribution to our understanding and appreciation of cricket. With input from several eminent cricketing historians, including the librarian at Lord’s, the book contains a fascinating range of material, from renowned classics to books that have hardly seen the light of day in the United Kingdom (e.g. The Hanse Cronje Story by Garth King); from overseas fiction to modern day autobiographies (Marcus Trescothick, Simon Hughes, Mike Brearley etc.) that have attained classic status. With 75 seminal cricket images, original line drawings and a comprehensive index, this book is a must-have for any self-respecting cricket fan.

thanksThanks, Johnners: An Affectionate Tribute to a Broadcasting Legend

Thanks Johnners is a warm tribute to my mentor Brian Johnston and his time at the helm of Test Match Special.

The on-air incident, in which my comment on Ian Botham’s attempt to avoid stepping on his stumps – “He just couldn’t quite get his leg over” provoking prolonged fits of giggles – most notably from Johnners – has been voted the greatest piece of sporting commentary ever. The friendship between myself and Brian became immortalised through that broadcasting classic, but there was a deeper bond between us, as this book reveals.

over-to-youOver to You, Aggers

The world of cricket has seen many ups and downs since my autobiography was first published back in 1997. This substantially updated edition of the book features my thoughts on the Cronje bribery scandal; the loss of the BBC televised coverage to Channel 4; England’s failures at the 1999 World Cup, in South Africa and against the Australians in 2001; and their successes against the West Indies and Pakistan. This book takes the reader on an odyssey around the cricketing world.
