Mind the Windows: Tino Best My Story


    Fiery West Indian cricketer Tino Best lives life in the fast lane - on and off the pitch. He was one of the quickest bowlers ever to have played the game, consistently exceeding 90mph in an eleven-year international career in which he roughed up - and got out - the best in the business. And if he played hard on the pitch, he played just as hard off it, living the playboy lifestyle with girls across the globe. In the middle, Best was never short of a word or two. He took his first Test wicket after giving Graham Thorpe an earful, he went nose-to-nose with Pakistan star Shoaib Malik in one heated exchange and later had to be separated from Kieron Pollard during one pugnacious argument in a hotel lift. Not content with his aggressive bowling, Best even dished out the verbals while batting: sledging the English bowlers during his record-breaking innings for a number 11 of 95 at Edgbaston. He reveals all about his career, including his fierce battle with Sachin Tendulkar in the Indian great's last ever Test, the dressing-room problems damaging the West Indies and his antics in the bedroom.Mind the Windows includes a foreword from Andrew Flintoff, the man who famously sledged him, while celebrity cricket fan Piers Morgan, legendary umpire Dickie Bird and former international captains Adam Hollioake and Darren Sammy have all written tributes.
