Devon Malcolm: My Autobiography by Devon Malcolm
In his autobiography, Malcolm reflects on his early years in the game in his teens as his family moved to England from his home in the Caribbean, and how this raw fast bowler was put through his paces in the Yorkshire League. On joining his first county club, Derbyshire, Malcolm describes how Michael Holding and Kim Barnett influenced his career, which resulted in a call up for England in 1989. His match winning achievements for his country are legendary: six for 77 against West Indies in Port of Spain in 1990; and 9 for 57 against South Africa at The Oval in 1994. Malcolm talks openly about the flare-ups on tour with former Chairman of Selectors, Ray Illingworth, his relationship with captain Mike Atherton, and how in general he has been badly mistreated by the England selectors; and as he embarks on a revitalised career with his new county Northamptonshire, he reveals his future plans in the game.
