Characters Of Cricket - Dan Whiting


Characters Of Cricket is a fun account detailing some of the most interesting men to have played the game in recent years.

Being a game that has always attracted mavericks and characters, from cantankerous batsmen to theatrical bowlers and others, this book takes a look at the good, the bad and the potentially dangerous men to have played the game.

Whiting, part of The Middle Stump, has interviewed and spoken to a huge number of people in the game, from the top players to fans and now he has compiled this series of portraits of players.

Sir Ian Botham, Steve Kirby, Steve Waugh and Graeme Swann are some of the players that feature and it includes a foreword by Somerset CCC chairman Andy Nash.


Dan Whiting is the brains behind The Middle Stump, a popular and amusing cricket blog and a growing Twitter presence. He is a local cricketer and his writing displays a broad knowledge of the sport as well as a talent for comedy. This is Dan’s second book following on from the success of Cricket Banter. He lives in Hertfordshire.
