Cricket My Way

Cricket My Way
Ian Botham

Jack Bannister

Ian Botham’s approach to cricket is simple: keep fit, play hard, aim to win and, above all, enjoy the game. His advice on the skills is equally straightforward: attempt to master the basics … But never be afraid to try something new.In Cricket My Way, Ian elaborates on his philosophy, explaining just why a positive attitude to all matches can pay dividends and how much he, despite his reputation as a brilliant individualist, places a heavy reliance on the traditional skills of the game.Packed with examples from his own experiences, and illustrated with both photographs and diagrams, Ian’s book is a forceful affirmation of his view that cricket, played well, can be the most exciting game in the world.
