Farokh: The Cricketing Cavalier : The authorised biography of Farokh Engineer Paperback / softback
by Colin Evans
John Arlott, one of cricket's most revered commentators said of Farokh Engineer: "He finds both cricket and life fun; he laughs easily and his jokes are often very funny but he can be grave.
His appeals are as loud as anyone's yet off the field he is quietly spoken.
As a batsman or wicketkeeper he is aggressive, yet he is a man of consideration and courtesy.
There has always been a quality of generosity about his cricket and his way of life."In this new book 'Farokh, The Cricketing Cavalier' Colin Evans, former cricket writer for the Manchester Evening News, looks back at Engineer's career, recalling many magical moments with Lancashire and India though the 1960s and 1970s. "John Arlott summed up Farokh so well," says Evans. ""I watched many of his performances for Lancashire from 1968 to 1976 and he had the ability to lighten up the gloomiest Manchester day, whether on the pitch or off it.
Nowadays, 40 years after his retirement from the game, he is still warmly welcomed all over the world as an ambassador for cricket."
