Ever wondered what it’s like playing Test Cricket?
What really goes on tour and beyond the boundary rope?
Here, for the first time, the world of a pro-cricketer is revealed, and the man pulling back the dressing room curtains is one of England’s greatest ever cricketers: James ‘Jimmy’ Anderson. 565 Test Wickets and counting.
Written with Felix White: musician, cricket enthusiast and Anderson’s co-host on BBC Five Live’s phenomenally popular podcast ‘Tailenders’, Jimmy invites us all into his world of cricket. Full of test-match sized stories and 20/20 anecdotes, this book contains everything you’ve dreamed of asking a top cricketer. And Jimmy provides the answers and insights into this world on and off the pitch.
We tackle the big questions. And, importantly, the small ones;
Do cricketers really watch Countdown instead of the Test whilst waiting to bat?
What are those conversations in the slip cordon?
And what does he eat as a tailender?
