Batting on the Bosphorus Summary

Batting on the Bosphorus: A Skoda-powered Cricket Tour Through Eastern Europe by Angus Bell

Following a chance encounter with a psychic, Angus Bell sets off on an 8,000-mile Skoda-powered road trip across Eastern Europe in search of a cricket match. It's a gloriously batty adventure which brings Bell face-to-face with fingerless fielders in the Czech Republic, Serbian MI6 agents, and the realisation that England's most eccentric game is being played with passion in the strangest corners of the continent.

Batting on the Bosphorus Reviews

Very funny. Dave Gorman meets Andrew Flintoff in clothes borrowed from Billy Connolly. * * The Times * *
Weird and wonderful . . . one of the maddest, most enterprising cricket tours of all time * * Guardian * *
It deserves to be as big a hit as the blow Bell dealt a cricket ball on the bridge over the Bosphorus, propelling it from Europe into Asia. * * Daily Telegraph * *
