Tony Lewis has reached the top of English cricket as a player captaining his country, as a commentator for the BBC, and as an administrator becoming President of the MCC. But even these bare outlines do not do justice to the full range of his career, as a musician, rugby player, head of the Welsh Tourist Board, and much else besides. In this memoir, Tony Lewis takes us through key episodes in his life, showing how chance moments have shaped much that followed. Written in a warm and lyrical style, this is a fascinating account of one man's remarkable life and of the sport he loves so much. He recalls the great characters he has met throughout his career, and gives his vision of a way forward for English cricket.Along the high wall from Harle Street you risked a shoulder charge that would slam you into bricks and mortar. ... would only be when the rugby bladder was under repair or the stuffed cap had exploded and no onea#39;s mum was in to stitch it up.
