Michael Parkinson on Cricket Summary

Michael Parkinson on Cricket by Michael Parkinson

For most of his professional life Michael Parkinson has been a highly regarded sports journalist. This consistently entertaining collection of his best articles reminds us that his first love is cricket and the people who excel at it. His ambition to play for England was thwarted, but not before he opened the batting with a young Dickie Bird at Barnsley. Along with hilarious memories of his cricket mad-father and a lost youth emulating his heroes in street games, Michael Parkinson has written descriptions of great players he has known and the moments or matches during which they were famous. Unsurprisingly there is an edge to what the author has to say about cricket administrators and the way the game is run.

About Michael Parkinson

Born in Yorkshire, Michael Parkinson left school at sixteen with the ambition to play cricket for Yorkshire and England and to write about cricket for the Manchester Guardian. Although, he didn't manage to fulfil the first half of his ambition, he has since become one of the most successful journalists of his generation. He wrote a sports column for The Sunday Times for fifteen years and now writes for the Telegraph. He is also a legendary TV and radio presenter and can currently be seen on BBC 1 in the return of his hugely popular TV chat show, Parkinson.
