About The Book:
Ever wondered what it’s like playing Test Cricket?
What really goes on tour and beyond the boundary rope?
Here, for the first time, the world of a pro-cricketer is revealed, and the man pulling back the dressing room curtains is one of England’s greatest ever cricketers: James ‘Jimmy’ Anderson. 565 Test Wickets and counting.
Written with Felix White: musician, cricket enthusiast and Anderson’s co-host on BBC Five Live’s phenomenally popular podcast ‘Tailenders’, Jimmy invites us all into his world of cricket. Full of test-match sized stories and 20/20 anecdotes, this book contains everything you’ve dreamed of asking a top cricketer. And Jimmy provides the answers and insights into this world on and off the pitch.
We tackle the big questions. And, importantly, the small ones;
Do cricketers really watch Countdown instead of the Test whilst waiting to bat?
What are those conversations in the slip cordon?
And what does he eat as a tailender?
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.
About The Author:
Jimmy Anderson is the greatest pace bowler of all time. With the final ball of the 2018 season, he surpassed Glen McGrath’s record for test wickets. His skill and mastery of swing bowling have pushed him to third on the list of all-time test wicket takers. Over a 16-year career, he’s bagged more than 570 test wickets and 850 international wickets in total. Jimmy has won three Ashes with England and taken cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar’s wicket more times than any other bowler… Not bad for a Burnley lad who only ever aspired to have a Peugeot with his name on it.
