Description

The life and times of the great Middlesex and England wicketkeeper-batsman John 'JT' Murray. A treasure trove of cricketing stories is recounted by Murray, who describes in droll anecdotal detail the great Tests, tours and the parade of celebrities, sporting and otherwise, that he encountered in 25 years as a professional sportsman.

About the author

Christopher Sandford is the author of some 30 books. Among them are a biography of the Pakistani sportsman-turned-prime minister, Imran Khan, and The Final Over, an account of the cricketers of the summer of 1914 - both of which were shortlisted for the MCC Cricket Book of the Year Award. Christopher's earlier biography of the deceased rock star Kurt Cobain is currently in development as a feature film.
