‘There are many reasons to love Blowers, as he is known to fans. For the past half century, his richly rambling cricket commentary has been synonymous with Radio 4 and Radio 5’s Test Match Special. And his vivid observations of pigeons, passing buses, snoozing policemen and butterflies has become the stuff of legend.’
Daily Telegraph

The book will also contain a glossary for those who want to make sure they know their googlys from their bouncers. This gift book is perfect for fans of cricket who want to understand the sport from Henry’s unique point of view, it is a humorous and entertaining jaunt through the cricket landscape.
