Tuffers' Cricket Hall of Fame
My willow-wielding idols, ball-twirling legends … and other random icons
By Phil Tufnell
The latest insightful, entertaining and downright hilarious book from the cricket legend and national treasure.
Phil Tufnell, cricket legend and national treasure, has populated his very own Cricket Hall of Fame with a deliciously eclectic collection of cricket legends and offbeat characters, with joyful results.
From boyhood heroes, to legendary team-mates, to fearsome opponents, to idiosyncratic umpires and broadcasters, Tuffers has gathered together the most enchanting cast of cricketing figures every assembled.
And it wouldn't be a Tuffers tome if there weren't a number of captivating appearances from some unexpected quarters, including some genuinely off-the-wall, non-cricketing inductees to keep life interesting in this very personal Hall of Fame.
By turns eccentric and warm-hearted, Tuffers' Cricket Hall of Fame is a joy for all cricket fans.
