CRICKET Q&A: LUKE FLETCHER ON MY TALES FROM THE FRONT LINE
For the latest episode of our virtual cricket talks Notts man Luke Fletcher will join BBC cricket reporter and commentator Mark Church to talk about his book Tales from the Front Line.
To join the virtual Q&A click on this link just before 7.30pm this Friday evening, 23rd October.
For over a decade Luke Fletcher has been a firm fan favourite at Trent Bridge.
This 6'6" gentle giant never gives less than 100 per cent for Nottinghamshire, but a laugh and a joke are never far from his lips.
Within the space of a week in 2017 he went from the highs of winning a Lord's cup final to suffering a serious injury.
As with most events in his life, the incidents provided scope for his infectious humour, much of it self-deprecating.
An uncanny ability to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and his on-off relationship with the strength and conditioning gurus has often landed him in hot water, providing ammunition for witty comebacks.
But although a clever quip is never far away, the broad-beamed paceman has earned the respect of everyone in the game.
He has played against - and got the better of - virtually every opponent he has faced and has a career record to be proud of.
In Tales from the Front Line, 'Fletch' serves up laughs aplenty as he takes us on an anecdotal journey through our summer game.
