My Song Shall Be Cricket: The Autobiography of Franklyn Stephenson [9781785316920]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
One of cricket's great characters, Franklyn Stephenson was branded a 'rebel' for touring in apartheid South Africa with a West Indian XI. As a black sportsman, he knew his actions went against the wishes of the authorities and that there would be consequences, yet he overcame the character slurs and subsequent bans from both his beloved Barbados and the West Indian Test selectors. Recognised as the first fast bowler to develop a cunning slower ball, Stephenson became one of the world's top all-rounders. The beaming Barbadian achieved cricketing immortality in 1988 by completing the domestic Double of scoring 1,000 runs and taking 100 wickets during an English summer - a feat that is unlikely to be repeated. Read about encounters, on and off the field, with household names such as Viv Richards, Andy Roberts, Clive Lloyd and Desmond Haynes - and a lifelong friendship with Sir Garfield Sobers. From a childhood full of dramatic life experiences to the heights of one-day finals at Lord's, here is the story of an amiable cricketing giant.
AUTHOR: Franklyn Stephenson collaborated on his autobiography with Dave Bracegirdle, a Nottinghamshire-based sports broadcaster and journalist, who has followed the fortunes of his local county club for many a year. Dave is a credited author on several football and cricket books, including Nottinghamshire CCC On This Day.
