Opening Up - My Autobiography by Mike Atherton
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Mike Atherton is considered by many to be the most articulate and perceptive captain of English cricket since Mike Brearley. He was also one of the most determined batsmen of the 1990s, and as an opener, a vital component of the England team. Atherton has played professional cricket for Lancashire and England for 15 years, despite a serious back complaint. He represented England in 115 Test matches and captained his country on a record 54 occasions. His recovery from a difficult situation in 1995 (when he was accused of ball tampering during the first Test match against South Africa at Lord's) proved a tough hurdle, yet one that would strengthen his resolve. His autobiography contains many serious observations about world cricket, as well as humorous asides and perceptive insights into the game.
