Description

No cricketer of modern times has experienced Mike Yardy's highs and lows. A serial trophy winner with Sussex and England, as player and captain, but he suffered in silence as mental illness dogged his early career, until the walls closed in during the 2011 World Cup. Since then he has rebuilt his career and his life. Hard Yards is his unique story.

About the author

Mike Yardy emerged from Sussex's junior system and joined the professional staff in 1999. He was part of the all-conquering county team that won trophies galore. He also played 42 times for his country and won the T20 World Cup in 2010. He retired five years later and is studying for a degree in sports science and coaches at Hurstpierpoint College. He lives in Brighton with wife Karin and three children. Co-writer Bruce Talbot is a Sussex-based cricket writer who has covered the game for nearly 30 years. This is his sixth book.
