The English Game

The English GameT1745479199
The Nightwatchmen: an amateur London cricket team, making up in enthusiasm for what they lack in ability. As they gather on a sunny Sunday to face Bernard and his highly talented squad, Thiz, Will, Clive and their team-mates spend the day smoking, drinking tea and discussing love, politics and the correct interpretation of the LBW rule.
Author Richard Bean
