Summary

Legendary cricket broadcaster Henry Blofeld takes the listener on a journey from A-Z through the world of cricket. 

In his trademark charming style, Blowers goes through the alphabet, explaining some of the puzzling cricket terminology and regaling his favourite anecdotes from his 50 years in the sport, covering the most important moments in the sport's history as well as the most entertaining and amusing. 

The book will also contain a glossary for those who want to make sure they know their googlys from their bouncers. 

This audiobook is perfect for fans of cricket who want to understand the sport from Henry's unique point of view. It is a humorous and entertaining jaunt through the cricket landscape.

Blowers, enough said

If you enjoyed his commentary you’ll enjoy this. (Even though I don’t agree with everything he says about Pietersen)

Classic Blowers

His voice does all the work but the stories are wonderful as well. An excellent listen.
