You're Havin' a Laugh: England, the Ashes, and All That

9780007252282: You're Havin' a Laugh: England, the Ashes, and All That

Phil Tufnell's entertaining account of the 2006--07 Ashes series in Australia is a sideways look at England's tour Down Under from one of the most likeably eccentric characters to have played cricket in recent years. Written in the same humorous style as the best-selling Postcards from the Beach, his insider's diary of England's 1998 tour to the West Indies, Phil Tufnell provides an alternative perspective on one of the great sporting contests, in which he himself took part several times. Can 2006--07 live up to the 2005 Ashes which England won in a nail-biting climax and which is viewed by many as the most exciting series ever? When the gladiatorial contest resumes at the end of 2006, Tufnell will be there to capture the thrills (and laughs) of the tour, as well as giving his own idiosyncratic take on the major incidents and personalities involved. Although he gave up ball (and bat) in 2002--03, Tufnell remains close to cricket and cricketers. As a cricketer he was never far from controversy himself, and as a commentator on the 2006--07 Ashes tour he is sure to ruffle a few feathers and and provide an engaging behind-the-scenes view of the tour.

Much as Jeremy Clarkson's musings on lads' fads struck a chord with millions, so Phil Tufnell's unique look on life and everything gives this book an enduring appeal even if you aren't a diehard follower of cricket.
