Is life without cricket worth living? It's a question asked and answered by The Grade Cricketer, as he faces a cricket-free future after an attempt at match fixing goes horribly wrong.

Hilarious, ridiculous and completely true to anyone who's ever spent time in a locker room, Tea and No Sympathy takes us on a skeweringly funny sporting misadventure through the world of Grade Cricket and the flawed, damaged and occasionally appalling people who play it.

Praise for The Grade Cricketer:
'The Grade Cricketer is the finest tribute to a sport since Nick Hornby's Fever Pitch, and the best cricket book in yonks. It's belly-laughing funny but it's also a hymn to the grand and complex game delivered with a narrative pace and ability I'm afraid most Test players don't have. For anyone who ever dreamed of excelling at a sport but never quite made it but still gave it your life, this is the story. A great read!' Tom Keneally

'The beauty of The Grade Cricketer is he is more than a grade cricketer - he is every cricketer, from the park to the SCG. His insights into the game make people laugh mostly because they reflect every cricketer's unspoken convictions. We all live vicariously through him, as he does us.' Kerry O'Keeffe

'The Grade Cricketer is strange and, I suspect, brilliant'. Wisden
