Synopsis

The Fastest Bowler in the World by Michael Hardcastle

This action-packed novel by the UK's best-selling sports fiction writer for children is a must for aspiring cricketers - boys and girls alike. Nick Freeland lives for cricket. His mum is an all-rounder in the England Women's Team and his ambition is not only to play for England but to be the fastest bowler in the world. And this is not just an idle dream, he's got the talent and the determination to realize his goal. And he's got a hero on his side - the fast bowler Kamram Aslam. What he hasn't got is the support of his school coach - and the chance to show just how good he is . . .
