It took many years for Michael Parkinson's own cricketing exploits to become well known - the breakthrough came with his appointment as cricket reporter on his local South Yorkshire newspaper. Headlines like 'Parkinson Again' or 'Another Parkinson Triumph' then became commonplace and even in lean times the readers were guaranteed a 'Parkinson Fails' headline every now and again just to keep the name fresh in their minds. With black and white illustrations by Derek Alder of the Sunday Times this new volume of Parkinson, has sharp but highly entertaining comments on a sport which has suddenly found its feet again.
