What I Love About Cricket is the story of a summer when a 'master' cricket obsessive teaches his novice 'pupil' the wisdom of the game. Sandy Balfour is cast as the supposed master and his sixteen-year-old daughter's new boyfriend - the skateboarding boy wonder - is the reluctant pupil.
This beginner's guide to the infuriatingly perverse game of cricket is a love letter addressed both to
those who utterly fail to understand it and to those who need reminding why they fell in love in
the first place. What unfolds is wonderfully observed, very funny and as much about fathers
and daughters, love and life, as it is about cricket.
