Bowl. Sleep. Repeat. Inside the World of England’s Greatest-Ever Bowler by Jimmy Anderson (Cassell, June 2019)
Ever wondered what it’s truly like being an England test cricketer? Why not ask England’s greatest ever bowler?

Jimmy Anderson invites you into his world of cricket and gives you a very personal insight into what it’s like playing at the top level. Through stories of his 16-year international career, Jimmy draws back the curtain on test cricket to reveal bizarre superstitions and rituals, strange training camps, the personalities he’s encountered, life on tour and what it’s like being a bowler in a batsman’s world.
Bowl. Sleep. Repeat. is a fascinating, entertaining and deeply personal look at the game of cricket and what life’s like beyond the boundary rope.
