  • - England in the West Indies 1986
    by Frances Edmonds
    £2.99

    Who can forget Frances Edmonds' explosive cricketing diaries of the 1980s?In 1986 an insider cricket memoir rocked the foundations of the sport - but it wasn't by a player.Frances Edmonds, married to Middlesex and England player Phil Edmonds - a WAG, no less - had the audacity to write one of the most talked-about cricket books of the decade.In Another Bloody Tour, her sharp, often hilarious account of England's devastating 1986 tour of the West Indies, she chronicled the unmitigated disaster of the cricket - along with the politics and scandal that accompanied what became known as the 'sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll tour'. Despite having been repeatedly told she knew nothing about the game, her perceptive, witty and wickedly irreverent memoir of those disappointing months was a national bestseller.Now, almost thirty years on, Frances' account is more relevant than ever. Updated with a new Introduction, here we find that, far more than any other sport, cricket is a microcosm where life in all its grim and glorious facets is vividly reflected.Since the 1980s the sport has changed immeasurably. Money has altered everything. Pay levels unheard of in the 1980s exacerbate the corrosive effects of having a superstar on the team. Leadership, motivation, team building, brand, crisis management, burn-out, the cult of celebrity and the elusive art of harnessing the star performer: these are challenges consistently encountered in every area of endeavour, but nowhere thrown more sharply into focus than by the madness and mayhem of Another Bloody Tour.

    Who can forget Frances Edmonds' explosive cricketing diaries of the 1980s? After the runaway success of Another Bloody Tour, Frances Edmonds returned to terrorise the England cricket team in 1987, heading to Australia to join husband Phil for three and a half months Down Under. While watching England retain the Ashes, and one or two other incidental one-day competitions, she once again lifted the lid on all the behind-the-scenes shenanigans in her inimitable and wickedly irreverent style. Against the decidedly unpromising backcloth of the disastrous defeat in the West Indies the previous year, this time the England team managed to pull themselves up by their boot-straps and turn their fortunes around. The tour of Australia was an unmitigated triumph. This was a very different story: there was fun, focus and good fellowship. And her account of it is outrageous, funny, perceptive and honest: Frances Edmonds at her best. But now, nearly thirty years on, updated with a new Introduction, this diary is more than a rollicking good read (which it is): on this tour we see in embryonic form the burgeoning phenomenon of the celebrity superstar player, which has gradually morphed into its now far more toxic iteration: the unchecked super-ego. And the game of cricket has of course changed in numerous other ways - the rise of mega-money, along with the changing character of the gentleman's game; and the continuous on-tour presence of WAGs, families, and an entourage that would make Cleopatra blush. Nothing less than sensational, Cricket XXXX Cricket continues to reveal as much about cricketing life off the field as on it.
