The All-rounder: The inside story of big time cricket by Dan Christian
What is it like to follow the sun as a T20 gun for hire?
Dan Christian is one of the world’s most sought after cricketers, not only a star for the Sydney Sixers but having been part of teams in premier leagues from India and Pakistan to South Africa and the Caribbean. In The All-Rounder, he takes us on a globe-trotting tour from Karachi to Cardiff, from the billion-dollar Indian Premier League, where he played for Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore, to the inaugural season of England’s new franchise competition The Hundred, where he led Manchester Originals.
It was a never-ending summer like no other, shadowed by COVID-19, encased in bio-secure bubbles, in which Dan also reflected on his indigenous heritage and grappled with imminent fatherhood, all the while concentrating on a fast-evolving, high-stakes game in which you’re a champion one day, a chump the next.
