Mike Brearley is one of England’s finest cricket captains and has written not only on the game itself but on the mindset you need to thrive as a sportsman and more broadly in life in his books On Form and The Art of Captaincy. In this new book, On Cricket, he returns to celebrate the game’s idiosyncratic culture and enduring appeal.
Journalist and broadcaster Peter Oborne will be chatting to Mike about the books. He is the author of many books on politics but has also written on cricket, most recently Wounded Tiger, his much-praised history of cricket in Pakistan.
‘Brearley is at his best in these quirky, delightful essays when he is exploring the human qualities of humbler players . . . Brearley’s admiration for his friends’ decency, craftsmanship and modesty seems to recall a golden age of county cricket’ The Times
