Blood, Sweat and Treason Reviews


"There are men who should be tied to a stake and forced to read Henry Olonga's book... men of whom Olonga has more courage, decency, idealism and integrity in one finger of his bowling hand..." Wisden Cricketer "An eloquent and graphic account... he is a remarkable character." Daily Mail "It's a tale of heroism, pure and simple." The Spectator "Truly gripping... an amazing tale." Sport Magazine "One of the most compelling stories I have ever read." CricketWeb

About Henry Olonga


Henry Olonga was Zimbabwe's first black cricketer and the youngest ever player to represent his country at international level. A fast bowler, he made his test debut aged 18 years old against Pakistan in 1995 and recorded career best figures of 5 for 70 against India in 1998. Following his black armband protest in 2003 he settled in England where he worked for Channel 4 and BBC's Test Match Special and played for the Lashings World XI cricket team. Since then he has embarked on careers in art, cinematography, public speaking and music.
