Books Info:

Slogging the Slavs free pdf Scotsman Angus Bell is innocently working for the Montreal Mafia when a Canadian psychic tells him an infant ghost is feeding him ideas. He's told he'll be leaving North America to embark on a travelling media project. When the words "cricket" and "Ukraine" pop into his head, he uncovers a hidden cricketing world across Central and Eastern Europe. From tournaments on ice in Estonia to university leagues in the Crimea- from a Croatian military island to communist Belarus, the Englishman's game is thriving. 24-year-old Angus sets off in his Skoda to smack them all for six. With fingerless 'Tamil Tigers' in Prague, a bomb plotter in the Austrian Alps, mafiosos and an MI6 secret agent making the teamsheets, Angus soon discovers a shadowy side of Slavic cricket. He becomes the first man to hit a ball between continents, and ends up captain of an international cricket team. Slogging The Slavs is a unique traveller's tale, taking the reader through border bribes, international drug-busts, Romanian dental surgeries and Sarajevan graveyards. In the company of anarchists, tobacco farmers, babushkas and The KGB, Bell re-defines the spirit of cricket and will make the game's most sworn enemy a fan.
