Perfect for cricket fans everywhere, Thanks Johnners is a warm and witty tribute to Brian Johnston and his time at the helm of Test Match Special. The Test Match Special on-air incident, in which Jonathan Agnew’s giggle-provoking comment on Ian Botham’s attempt to avoid stepping on his stumps has been voted the greatest piece of sporting commentary ever. The friendship between “Aggers” and “Johnners” became immortalised through that broadcasting classic, but there was a far deeper bond between the two men, as this fascinating book – a rich blend of biography and anecdote, of antics and dramas – reveals.
