Author: Broom, Oli
Publication date: 07/03/2014
Description (from goodreads.com):
One man, one bike, a cricket bat, 16,000 miles and a lot of dead kangaroos.
Oli Broom loves cricket. So much so that in 2009 he left his 9 to 5 in London and set off to cycle to Brisbane for the Ashes. Along the way he played cricket in the shadow of the Blue Mosque, slept in a goat pen in Sudan, dodged a 5-metre crocodile in the outback, battled mountains in sub-zero temperatures in Bulgaria and successfully negotiated the treacherous highways of India.
Starring the colourful characters he met on his travels, this is a hilarious and poignant tale for anyone who's ever dreamt of jacking in the day job to embark on an incredible adventure.
