I read books, watch films and them. Like thousands of Aussie kids playing cricket at school, in their backyards or on the beach - Barry wanted to be bat like them, bowl like them and play for Australia. It no doubt helped that he and I are of a similar vintage. I've recently released a book:. The book made me laugh, reflect over times in my own life, and even cry.

You Only Get One Innings, Family, Mates and the Wisdom of Cricket by Barry Nicholls

I smiled particularly at what I suspect is an inevitable consequence of an early passion for cricket, that being a somewhat shambolic start to our efforts to win over the hearts of fair maidens. Those of us whose claim to fame with the bat is to almost have carried our bat through a complete innings without scoring would give our eye teeth to have scored just a fraction of the runs Barry Nicholls has under his belt. But along the way Barry discovered that in the competing, the striving and just having fun with his family, friends and mates - that cricket really can change your life - even if you don't get to play for Australia. I also had a rather easier childhood than Barry Nicholls. As the years go by Dex meets a woman and settles down having a child, whereas Emma finds her way becoming a Teacher, which eventually leads her to her dream of writing books.

I finally worked out about half way through that he is in fact a couple of years younger than me, but when you get to our age that is something which, as near as dammit, makes no difference. At first blush it seems a fair argument, but it must be flawed, if for no other reason than Barry Nicholls book is a very enjoyable read. Delivery takes approximately 7-12 business days. Like thousands of Aussie kids playing cricket at school, in their backyards or on the beach - Barry wanted to be bat like them, bowl like them and play for Australia. But like many boys who dreamed those dreams, he never quite did. Having read the book I can confirm that the Wark quote is accurate, and the Nicholls one somewhat misleading, to put it mildly. Some would describe my upbringing, and occasionally I might concede this myself, as idyllic, but later life has evened that one up, Nicholls giving his own children a stability I was sadly unable to give to mine.

On the other hand I dare say Rodney would struggle to see beyond a two or three at most, but that is because he is too young for much of the book to strike enough of a chord with him, but he should persevere.

Coming from opposite sides of the planet is an obvious one, and our cricketing abilities another. As a young boy growing up in the 1970s in the suburbs of Adelaide, Barry Nicholls was negotiating the dreadful haircuts and unrequited infatuations of adolescence, while his heroes, Chappell, Lillee and thommo, were creating cricket history against Pommie champions like Boycott and Botham. He has obviously found a degree of fame from putting in a guest appearance for the review team in February with his thoughts on. I will pass no comment on his abilities in that respect, never having heard him at work, but I do feel obliged to express a view on his abilities as a cricketer. He has also written for publications including Wisden Cricketers' Almanac, Inside Edge, Baggy Green, Cricket Lore and The Allrounder.
