Test Match Special

Tall Tales - Our favourite stories from the commentary box (and more)



To coincide with their first ever Test Match Special live tour, a sparkling new collection of cricket tales from Aggers, Tuffer, Vaughan, and the TMS Team.

Which bowlers did Vaughan lose sleep over? Who played the best pranks on his fellow team-mates? Which member of the TMS team terrorised his teachers in the annual staff-pupil game? And what really happened the night after the 2005 Ashes...?

Between them, Jonathan Agnew, Phil Tufnell and Michael Vaughan have probably watched more cricket than anyone alive, and they have many stories to tell, both as players and as commentators for Test Match Special. From their days as schoolboy cricketers, learning the ropes, to the shenanigans of the county circuit, and now their careers as commentators, the trio have seen it all.

Joined by colleagues from TMS such as Isa Guha, Ebony Rainford Brent, Alison Mitchell, Carlos Brathwaite and Aatif Nawaz, Aggers, Tuffers and Vaughan share the highlights, mishaps and moments of brilliance and emotion that they have witnessed and experienced on pitches around the world.
