Ed Smith kept a diary of the 2003 cricketing season. It became a record of the most extraordinary summer of his life. The highs saw him become the first domestic batsman to reach 1000 runs, make four consecutive centuries and get a shot at playing for England. The lows involved a horrific injury to his captain and then saw his promising international career end almost as soon as it began. However, Smith's ability to conjure the thrill of the crease the batsman's exhilaration and fear as he's hunted relentlessly by bowler and fielder alongside startling insights into the game make this the definitive insider's book on modern cricket.
