Batting on the Bosphorus

Batting On The Bosphorus is the hugely popular international travel book, written by cricket-obsessed Scotsman Angus Bell. It is a true and riotous account of Angus’ 8,000-mile odyssey through central & Eastern Europe in a Skoda, meeting the world’s strangest cricket teams. A tale involving MI6 agents, fingerless terrorists, and matches next to minefields, Batting on the Bosphorus was Book of the Week on BBC Radio 4, The Guardian Travel, Daily Telegraph Sport and Independent on Sunday.

“I challenge you to put this book down…even if you aren’t interested in cricket, by the time you’ve finished you will be. This is a beautifully written work that will have you laughing out loud.” Cricket World

“This book deserves to be as big a hit as the blow dealt a cricket ball on the bridge over the Bosphorus, propelling it from Europe into Asia.” Daily Telegraph

“Very, very funny!” CBC
