Cricket365, in association with Jonathan Ball Publishers, are giving away several signed copies of former South African wicketkeeper-batsman Mark Boucher's autobiography – <i>Bouch – Through My Eyes</i>.
To win, no matter which country you live in (we'll deliver), simply leave a caption – quirky, comical or insightful – for the picture to the right via the Facebook comments tool below.
Winners will be notified and announced at the conclusion of the Proteas' limited-overs series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates. Keep an eye out, too, for our review of <i>Bouch – Through My Eyes</i> during November.
'When Mark Boucher played his first game of cricket for South Africa, a senior player took him aside and bluntly told him he was the worst wicketkeeper ever to play in the national side. Over a decade later, when Bouch finally retired with a plethora of records under his belt and to huge acclaim from the public, he took grim satisfaction in relating this piece of history.
'Through my Eyes is the story of a man with remarkable sporting prowess. Born into a sports-mad family in East London, he excelled in squash, tennis and rugby before choosing cricket as his preferred sport. His extraordinary achievements on the field are well known – he was voted SA player of the year in 1998, 2000 and 2006.
'What is not so well known, and makes up much of this book, are the behind-the-scenes stories and anecdotes. Stories of staring down the barrel of defeat and of celebrating victory; of developing strong bonds with teammates Graeme Smith, Jacques Kallis and others that go way beyond mere friendship. What emerges is the image of a man who always fought for the underdog, whose never-say-die attitude inspires those around him.'
