Robin Jackman has been entering cricket followers for more than forty years as a player, commentator and after-dinner speaker. His life in cricket makes a fascinating story and his list of characters includes virtually all the great names in the game during his career. Whether it is sharing a bottle of wine with Ian Botham, being hit on the knee by a ferocious drive by Viv Richards or listening to a chaotic team talk by MIke Procter, 'Jackers' has a fund of stories, some serious and many hilarious. He played first-class cricket for 17 years representing Surrey, Western Province and Rhodesia with passionate commitment. A bustling fast bowler, he took more than 1800 wickets in first-class and 'List A' matches. For many years he was among the leading bowlers in England before he finally played in a Test match on the controversial tour of the West Indies in 1980/1981 - a tour which was in danger of being cancelled because of his links with South Africa. For the first time he tells the inside story of the tour. As a commentator, he has been to every major cricket-playing nation in the world and is widely admired for his expert analysis, sense of humour and deep love of the game - qualities which shine through a highly entertaining autobiography.
