Batting on the Bosphorus - NEW BBC Radio Audiobook - cheops
Scottish sports writer Angus Bell's account of a cricket tour to unusual places, read by Robin Laing.
This is a unique and hilarious traveller's tale that redefines the spirit of cricket.Following a chance encounter with a psychic, Angus Bell sets off on an 8,000-mile Skoda-powered road trip across Eastern Europe in search of a cricket match. It's a gloriously batty adventure which brings Bell face-to-face with fingerless fielders in the Czech Republic, Serbian MI6 agents, and the realisation that England's most eccentric game is being played with passion in the strangest corners of the continent.
