Batting on The Bosphorus



Very much enjoyed reading about Angus Bell’s tour to Eastern Europe to play cricket and of his desire to finally hit that ton. His misadventures in his Skoda take him way off the beaten cricketing track and he meets some wonderfully colourul ex pats as well as natives who for a myriad of reasons have taken up the game. I certainly empathised with some of the wickets he has to put up with.

Travelling on a shoe string you feel as if you are right there with him as he blazes a trail across the ex Soviet Bloc with his cricket equipment. The big question is, does he get that hundred?
