" Unlimited Overs"
As Roger Morgan-Grenville prepares for a new season with the White Hunter Cricket Club, he is starting to feel his age so he embarks on a secret plan of coaching, yoga and psychology to improve his game. Will he emerge as a sporting demigod, or will his teammates even notice the difference ? This is a humorous and heartwarming story of that cricket season, as the White Hunters go from disaster to triumph. It is a tale of competitiveness, suspense, excellence, hospitality and incompetence, such as the missing fielder found asleep in the woods and the two opening bowlers whose MG roadster breaks down on the way to the game. From the Castle Ground in Arundel to a field next to a nudist camp in France, players such as the Tree Hugger, the Gun Runner, and their wicket-keeper, the Human Sieve, share the dream that this might be their day. Above all, it is the uplifting story of friendship among a team of not-very-good players, who find moments of near brilliance to remind them why they turn up for more, game after game, season after season.
