I will never forget Boycott "crying" into his handkerchief at Trinidad in 1994. The crowd loved it. It suited them perfectly as they had been offering us cups of tea whilst dancing around.
Clearly he is not perfect. No one is. But for a Yorkshireman he's not as bad as some make out.
And he predicted Sri Lanka following on.
Yep,,rarely wrong is he? And always worth listening to.
The over-riding thing about all the Boycott books is that he has had to be so single-minded to get on - even in Yorkies colts to get his career started.
Only hit 1 Sunday ton - at Bae Colwyn.
I think the best books about him is this one by the cricket writer of the Yorkshire Eevening Post in 1982 - very balanced indeed:
