Publisher's Summary

A wonderful collection of hilarious cricket stories and anecdotes from the one and only 'Tuffers'. Phil Tufnell, aka 'Tuffers', is the much-loved English cricketer who has now become one of the country's favourite broadcasters. Not cast from the same mould as other players of his generation, Tufnell has become a cult figure for his unorthodox approach to the game ... and to life in general.
Tuffers' Cricket Tales is a deliciously eccentric collection of the great man's favourite cricket stories that will amuse and inform in equal measure. Tufnell's unmistakeably distinctive voice, as heard to such good effect on Test Match Special, steers fans through dozens and dozens of terrifically entertaining and insightful anecdotes, garnered from his 25-year playing and broadcasting career. Tuffers' Cricket Tales introduces a cast of genuinely colourful characters found in dressing-rooms and commentary boxes from around the world, and in the process, offers a uniquely warm and quirky homage to the sport.

Spoilt by Tuffers narrating his own book

The man himself, Phil Tufnell narrates this book. Originally that was part of the appeal as to why I chose it, thinking he would be wit and charm, but it hasn't worked out that way. In fact, I found it hard to listen to.



Also, he intentionally bleeps outs words he thinks the listener will be offended by - which ends up sounding a bit daft. Never come across an audio book which bleeps out words. Maybe its done for comic effect, but its just annoying.
