Talking Cricket: An ESPNcricinfo book
Talking Cricket

Talking Cricket is a collection of the best long-form interviews from Wisden Asia Cricket and Cricinfo magazines and the ESPNcricinfo website over the last decade.

The 22 interviews gathered here bring together wisdom, insights, anecdotes and humour from some of the finest practitioners of cricket's many crafts, and provide the fan with a deeper appreciation of the game we all love.

Featured are the great and good of the game from across eras - from Frank Tyson and Garry Sobers to Virender Sehwag and Mahela Jayawardene, and plenty more in between.

Each interview is broadly focused on a theme. There's Barry Richards on batting, Ian Chappell on the Australian way, Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis on swing bowling, Allan Donald and Michael Holding on fast bowling, Simon Taufel on umpiring, Anil Kumble on spin, and four interviews on captaincy: Mark Taylor, Nasser Hussain, Mahela Jayawardene and MAK Pataudi.
