Felix White and Jon Hotten For the Love of Cricket
Cricket is a curious game. It inspires deep passion and devotion in people all over the globe. It’s played on grass, in dust and occasionally even on compacted snow. Following the fortunes of the England cricket team is nothing short of a roller coaster of emotions – ever hopeful, often crushed (small wonder they are called the Barmy Army) - but the passion remains. Trying to make sense of it all are lifelong cricket fans Felix White (It’s Always Summer Somewhere and guitarist for The Maccabees) and Jon Hotton (author of Bat, Ball and Field), talking to the equally fanatical fan when he's not BBC Health Editor, Hugh Pym.
