I’m reviewing Bill Frindall’s autobiography – Bearders: My Life In Cricket – which, I’ll be perfectly honest, hasn’t filled me with wonder and awe. However, in the dozen or so pages I flicked through last night (he has chapters on most of his colleagues over the years: John Arlott, Jonathan Agnew, Vic Marks, Brian Johnston – all that lot) it could be quite entertaining. I’m just a bit worried that the statistical stuff might get in the way.
We’ll see. He’s the editor of the long-running (and firm favourite of mine) Playfair Cricket Annual, and has been Test Match Special’s scorer seemingly for ever.
