Ronnie Irani had an extraordinary career as a first class cricketer and is now a star broadcaster with talkSport. He grew up in Bolton and has his professional debut with Lancashire aged just 16. But frustrated at constantly playing in the 'stiffs', Ronnie took his courage in both hands and moved to Essex - even though he was only vaguely aware it was somewhere near the Dartford Tunnel. He became one of the county's all-time great players, went on to captain them to three trophies and became a legend with the fans. Ronnie is typically honest about his relationships in the game - good and bad; he relates how he used unconventional medical advice to overcome career threatening injuries; he takes you out to the crease and back in the dressing room; he gives you vivid insights into the humour and the heartache, the trials and the triumphs of being a top sports star. And time and time again he shows why he became a favourite with cricket supporters around the world and why Frank Dick added: 'Telling Ronnie Irani that what he wants to achieve can't be done is like lighting a fuse.'
