“Around the World in 80 Wickets” is the story of a family from Scotland (sort-of) travelling the world for seven months exploring countries, cultures and communities by extending a friendly cricket bat. If it is not immediately obvious, Merryn is neither a sports writer nor a cricket buff. For intelligent analysis of the game and latest match results, look elsewhere. (Recommendations of good sites welcome!) But for sharing discoveries about the game and the places we play and the people we meet, you have come to the right blog.
PS My thanks to an anonymous donor linked to the Tom McGrath Trust who gave a contribution towards replacing cricket balls en route. I do hope we shall hit enough sixes into jungles and rivers to merit your generosity.
