Every weekend a team of middle-aged blokes come together to play cricket. They are mates with families and jobs, and they all have a story to tell. William makes each one a king as he brings them and their loved ones vividly and hilariously to life in CRICKET KINGS.

Step into the lives of a team of regular middle-aged men who meet each week to play cricket in their local park. They don't seem to be extraordinary - they are just like the rest of us - but like everyone, they each have a story to tell.

"Our parents left us out without fear for our safety and knew little about what we did. The wonderful freedom of discovering the world on your own. Our days were slow and unorganized-perfect for a kid. I wouldn't change a thing." A wonderful youth-a gift that lasts a lifetime.
