An extract from 'The Wrong Line' in Mid Day Sports, Mumbai
July 29, 2013
An extract from cricket writer Andrew Ramsey’s book The Wrong Line which chronicles the privileges and pitfalls of a life spent trotting the globe, hanging out with sports stars, and being paid to watch cricket, was included in the Mid Day Sports newspaper, Mumbia, alongside an article by Ramsey about the Ashes 2013.
The Wrong Line
Set within the players’ dressing room and on the team bus; at the bar, the breakfast table, and even in a haunted medieval castle; in England, the West Indies and India, as well as Sharjah, Bangladesh, Kenya and Hong Kong — The Wrong Line gives you a ringside seat at some of the most memorable cricket events, including the remarkable 1999 World Cup and Australia’s chaotic 2005 Ashes campaign.
A tour diary unlike any you have ever read, it delivers a rare insight into the off-field life, character and thoughts of some of the game’s all-time greats, including Stephen Waugh, Shane Warne, Ricky Ponting, Glenn McGrath, Adam Gilchrist and Brian Lara
