And Now For Something Completely Different - Cricket World Meets John Cleese

Recently, Cricket World were very kindly invited to spend some time with actor and writer John Cleese, who is a keen cricket fan, following the launch of his autobiography, 'So, Anyway'.

The book, which you can win a copy of by clicking here, documents his life growing up in Somerset to success as part of the Monty Python comedy troupe.

Watch some clips below as he tackles a number of topics from how bad Somerset were when he was watching them as a lad, to his unique bowling grip and why cricket captains should be encouraged to stop talking in clichés.

Cricket was part of living in Somerset...

His unique bowling grip and why it got unsuspecting batsmen out...

Why sports commentators and captains should stop using clichés...

Why cricket's complexities and varities are far more interesting for him than baseball...

And why does he "rather like" the Decision Review System (DRS)?

Keep an eye out for more from John Cleese on Cricket World in the coming weeks.
