A wonderful collection of hilarious cricket stories and anecdotes from the one and only 'Tuffers'. Phil Tufnell, aka 'Tuffers', is the much-loved English cricketer who has now become one of the country's favourite broadcasters. Not cast from the same mould as other players of his generation, Tufnell has become a cult figure for his unorthodox approach to the game ... and to life in general. Tuffers' Cricket Tales is a deliciously eccentric collection of the great man's favourite cricket stories that will amuse and inform.

Fanatical about cricket since he was a boy, Miles Jupp would do anything to see his heroes play. But perhaps deciding to bluff his way into the press corps during England's Test series in India wasn't his best idea. By claiming to be the cricket correspondent for BBC Scotland and getting a job with the (Welsh) Western Mail, Miles lands the press pass that will surely be the ticket to his dreams. Soon, he finds himself in cricket heaven - drinking with David Gower and Beefy, and sharing bar room banter with Nasser Hussain.

Fibber in the heat is a fantastic true story that endears from the start. My book of the year so far.
