Cricket in Uzbekistan: some writing for the 2014 Wisden Almanack

Wisden Almanack 2014This year’s Wisden Almanack includes a piece that I wrote for its ‘Cricket Round The World’ section, about Uzbekistan’s first ever cricket tournament.

 It’s been a highlight of my year to write about two things that fascinate me – cricket and the post-Soviet republics – in a book alongside my favourite writers; Wisden 2014 has essays by Gideon Haigh, Ed Smith and its editor Lawrence Booth.

The latest Cricket Round The World comes from Colombia, Hungary, Iran, Nauru and Japan, as well as Uzbekistan and other places. To find out about the games in Tashkent, just send me an email.

There is a now a book of memorable past CRTW stories – Elk Stopped Play.

Also: From Russia With Stumps – my tale of creating London’s Eastern European cricket team.

You can support a children’s charity in Central Asia that I am involved with, HealthProm, by sponsoring me in a 10km run.
