9780002189583: Botham?s Century: My 100 great cricketing characters

One hundred colourful portraits of the cricketing characters whom Ian Botham has come into contact with during his eventful career and who have influenced the game for good during this time: from top players, umpires and coaches to pop stars, writers and philanthropists.

Among the cast of characters who feature in Botham’s own Who’s Who of cricket are many of the world’s top past and present players, cricketers such as Viv Richards, Brian Close, Shane Warne and Nasser Hussain.

Umpire Dickie Bird and the late John Arlott also have a place in Beefy’s Hall of Fame. Others associated with cricket include Mick Jagger, Nelson Mandela and Nick Faldo; and many more who in Beefy’s opinion have been a positive influence in the game during his era.

Witty, entertaining and controversial, these portraits have already incited a plethora of opinions from those both inside and outside the game.

This paperback edition is sure to be another Botham bestseller.

About the Author:

Ian Botham was the most thrilling sight in sport for nearly two decades at the top of international cricket. He retired from the game in 1993 and has since acted as coaching advisor to the England team, a commentator for Sky TV, and has a newspaper column in the Daily Mirror. He continues to be a keen analyser of the game.

Peter Hayter is the cricket correspondent of the Mail on Sunday. He has also written for the Observer and the Independent and collaborated with Botham on his bestselling autobiography, and the Botham Report.

Review:

‘An Enjoyable offering’ The Sunday Times

‘An inventive concept in sports books’ Publishing News

‘I would back this readable pardbacked Hello! to rattle the Christmas cash-tills’ Wisden Cricket Monthly

‘It does make a great read’ Yorkshire Evening Post
