Based on the diary of Tasmania cricketer Ed Cowan, this book includes the left-handed batsman’s thoughts on the game, other players, motivational philosophies, and records of performances. Funny and intelligent, it offers a view into cricket life on and off the pitch and what makes cricket tick for both its fans and players. Far from the glamour of playing for Australia and uncomfortably close to the long drop to amateurism, this narrative illustrates the pressure and excitement of a player when every match is rife with the possibility of being discovered and propelled into international stardom in the baggy green.

Ed Cowan is an Australian cricketer playing for Tasmania and the recipient of a Man of the Match award.
