A Beautiful Game
A Beautiful Game: My Love Affair with Cricket | Mark Nicholas
1 post
Mark Nicholas, anchor for Channel 9's Test commentary team in Australia and Channel 5's Cricket on Five show in the UK, has a unique knowledge and perspective on the world game of cricket. As both a former player and now a professional observer and commentator on the game he knows all the key figures in the sport and has witnessed first-hand some of cricket's greatest moments ... His book is a personal account of the game as he's seen and experienced it. Focusing on England and Australia, the two countries he's intimately familiar with, Mark takes us through the modern game, illuminating the arts of batting, bowling and captaincy, and giving us a wealth of detail about the world's greatest players, as well as epic Ashes battles ... Informed by Mark's own experiences and observations, and filled with wonderful anecdotes, larger than life characters, and an extraordinary breadth of cricket knowledge, A Beautiful Game shows why Mark is so passionate about the sport, and exactly why cricket really is the world's beautiful game.

Cinfhen Ha!!! I needed @EadieB daily lyrics post 😜😂😂😆well that explains EVERYTHING 😘 3d
CarolynM We could have gone for reggae or Jamaica I suppose, but I suspect we would have needed to explain that too. I'm glad I kept away from references to queering the pitch 😂 3d
arlenefinnigan @CarolynM I misheard that line as "don't you wee on me pitch" for years. 3d
CarolynM 😂😂😂 3d
BarbaraBB @CarolynM This is new to me! Lol, I think I only heard the refrain! 3d
