The Year of the Balls 2008 A Disrespective

The Year of the Balls 2008  A Disrespective

Someone else said "you'll find him in the last place you look, you mark my words!". I did explain that this was the case with any kind of search, as people do not generally continue looking for something after they have found it.

If Wisden is cricket's bible, then Cricket With Balls is its Satanic Verses. This is not a cricket book for the tea and crumpet set. You need to be a perverted sort of cricket fan to enjoy this. You'll find yourself immersed in the players' boudoir activities, cry at the Bryce McGain saga and will be asked to join Sehwagology. There are heroes, villains and tales of South African redemption that will make you question the very core of your being. The book has more cricket opinion than an orgy with Peter Roebuck, Navjot Sidhu, Arjuna Ranatunga and Geoffrey Boycott. Abducted directly from the blog cricketwithballs.com, this is the ultimate disrespective of the 2008 cricket year.
