...spanking new, gorgeously green, weighing a ton, has just arrived at my desk. I’ve been very sad the last few days because I had to pass up on this event (which I couldn’t plan for because of the London trip) - but now I’m happy again, as the poet said.
This book (Out of My Comfort Zone) really is massive and I’ve spent the last hour turning it over in my hands and studying it from all angles (this sounds foolish but it’s very good exercise). And anyone who knows about Waugh’s career-long habit of maintaining tour diaries will know this should be one of those rare cricketers’ autoBs that isn’t ghost-written. Much fun ahead.
