I’ve written written four books, ‘A year of the balls’, ‘When Freddie became Jesus’,  ‘Australian Autopsy’ and ‘Test Cricket: the unauthorised Biography’. I was co-director and writer of the documentary ‘Death of a Gentleman’. Currently I am ESPNcricinfo’s global cricket writer. I edited the magazine ‘Spin Cricket’. I’ve commentated for ABC Grandstand and Talksport, and appeared as a talking head on BBC, NDTV, 3AW, SABC, and CNN. Hosted cricket podcasts with Gideon Haigh, John Buchanan and Andy Zaltzman. And had my own cricket radio show.

I’ve covered something like 80 or 90 Tests, two world cups, two world T20s, T20 leagues, and toured over nine cricket nations.

According to Rahul Dravid, I helped loosen him up.
