Penguins Stopped Play

Penguins Stopped Play: Eleven Cricketers Take on the WorldKathryn bought me this book for Christmas and I read it on the train to and from a meeting in London last week. I literally – no pun intended – read it from cover to cover in the 4 hours of travelling and I can highly recommend it.

It’s based on the exploits of a village cricket team who take themselves around the world playing in various exotic locations often finding themselves mismatched against area champions, teams with professionals and even entire countries!

Not one for those who have no interest in cricket but I couldn’t help but compare the Captain Scott Invitation XI with the bunch of misfits that make up my team, Cardiff Northern.
