What to expect

This bumper collection of the funniest anecdotes, jokes and stories from cricket’s best-loved personalities proves that cricket is a funny game – even when rain stops play!

In this special audio edition, you can hear not only the most popular stories told by five of the game’s all-time great characters – Richie Benaud, Dickie Bird, Henry Blofeld, Brian Johnston and Fred Trueman – but also the humour of famous cricketers such as Ian Botham, Andrew Flintoff, Justin Langer, Shane Warne, and modern players including Jimmy Anderson, Joe Root and Ben Stokes.

Here are dozens of hilarious anecdotes from around the world about the legendary cricketers Geoffrey Boycott, Donald Bradman, Michael Holding, Sachin Tendulkar and many others – not to mention broadcasting gaffes and giggles, sledging, short-sighted umpires and the phantom sock snipper in the England dressing-room!
