Won't You Dance for Virat Kohli? : The Secret Life and Thoughts of a Cricketing Badger, Paperback / softback Book

Won't You Dance for Virat Kohli? : The Secret Life and Thoughts of a Cricketing Badger Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Former Gloucestershire Media Sports Writer of the Year Rob Harris has been playing village cricket for almost 40 years.

In inner cities some kids join street gangs in search of respect, but in Rob's childhood the gangs were village cricket clubs and the weapon of choice was a Gunn & Moore bat.

Won't You Dance for Virat Kohli? is an honest, funny and colourful account of sporting obsession and how a childhood passion for cricket can dominate grown-up thoughts, dreams, relationships - and weekends.

This is the story of one humble club cricketer's misguided search for personal respect and fulfilment in the strangest of places, foregoing holidays and family time to spend long summer days lounging around village greens with other screwed-up 'weekend warriors', whilst secretly wishing he was somewhere - anywhere - else.

It is a book that will resonate with anyone who knows and loves grass-roots cricket.
