Review: ChinamanUser Review - Carl - Goodreads
Enjoyable read. Even if you're not into cricket the writing is witty and I laughed out loud a couple of times. Great characters. Would advise that you don;t bother trying to decipher the Sri Lankan names! Also emotional in parts. Almost scored it a 4......almost. Read full review
