Batting on the Bosphorous

By Angus Bell

Published Jan 2010

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.
