I miss playing cricket but will always catch up with what’s going on in the sport by reading The Cricketer. When you have a major tour coming up or something like the Ashes on the horizon, it’s brilliant to read up on who will be the players to watch. I love the detail too about wickets, equipment and fixtures, and there are some nice features in there with a cross-section of players, from past and present.
I also love a bit of cricket and follow the England team especially. Cricket has such a rich tradition and I can sometimes be found soaking it all up at Lord’s. There is a magazine called The Cricketer that I have read, which explores the traditions of the sport as well as keeping the reader up to speed with latest news and results.
I love cricket and always dreamed of having a career as a cricketer. It’s a sport that has so much depth and intelligence, and it can be brutally violent at time. Yet, by the same token, it is serene and respectful to the very last. I think The Cricketer is probably a more modern take on cricket and as much about the T20 and ODI formats, but for the coverage and interviews it is second to none.
When you’re playing cricket (or watching it for that matter) it’s always good to have a few magazines or newspapers at the ready. I like The Cricketer – it’s probably the most un-cricket-like of all the cricket press out there. It’s modern, interesting and very lifestyle-led.
I’m a cricket fanatic so it doesn’t take much imagination to suppose what my favourite magazine is – The Cricketer. People say that cricket is quite a slow sport, and I suppose I read the title in a similar way – taking my time over the articles and absorbing everything it tells me. It’s a great read.
