9781408152409: Crickileaks: The Secret Ashes Diaries

Cricket's greatest legends. Sport's fiercest rivalry. Wisden's fakest diaries. CrickiLeaks charges headlong onto the players' balcony and imagines 40 cricketing diaries of rare wit and invention, along with the illustrated book covers they might have inspired. Featuring spoof journal entries drawn from throughout Ashes history, CrickiLeaks reveals for the first time the innermost thoughts of the greatest cricketers of the last 129 years. And Mitchell Johnson. CrickiLeaks includes imagined diaries from players on the most recent tour (Andrew Strauss, Ricky Ponting), diaries from the all-time greats (Shane Warne, Freddie Flintoff, Sir Ian Botham, Geoffrey Boycott, Donald Bradman, W.G. Grace), as well as contributions from less obvious personalities. An irreverent and entertaining collection of Ashes diaries, CrickiLeaks finally lays to rest some of cricket's greatest mysteries: - What exactly was going through Gatting's mind as he faced the ball of the century? - Why did Ricky Ponting lose his rag with Ronald McDonald? - What really went on between Douglas Jardine and Daphne the Koala in Adelaide Zoo? A riotous and uniquely scurrilous addition to any cricket-lover's library.

About the Author:

Alan Tyers has a monthly column in The Wisden Cricketer magazine and writes weekly spoof diaries on thewisdencricketer.com. Beach is an illustrator and cartoonist who regularly contributes to The Wisden Cricketer magazine.

Review:

"Beautifully illustrated and hilarious" Sport Magazine "Devour in one go or relish in the bathroom: the new one from Tyers and Beach is compelling either way" ESPN Cricinfo (May 2011) "It's the sort of book that can easily be devoured in one sitting but lends itself to endless revisiting - on the khazi, inevitably, because it's quite simply that type of read." ESPN Cricinfo (May 2011) "Although it's a slim volume running to only 127 pages and featuring 40 "diaries" each with their own illustration, there are laugh-out-loud moments aplenty." Spin Cricket Magazine (June 2011) "Tyers's words are expertly complimented by Beach's excellent sketches and I am sure that anyone who enjoyed 'W.G.Grace Ate my Pedalo' will thoroughly enjoy 'CrickiLeaks' Andrew Roberts Cricket Statistics 'Waugh and Boycott, Gooch and Gower are just four of the CrickiLeak's many dazzling highlights. But this book does come with one warning. Don't try reading it aloud to friends: it is impossible not to break down laughing.' The Spectator (13 August 2011)
