From the cover: “Four More Weeks is Mark Ramprakash’s gripping diary of Surrey’s traumatic 2005 cricket season.

Handing over the captaincy of the team at the start of the season, injured Surrey skipper Mark Butcher tells Ramps he is “four more weeks” away from his comeback. It turns out to be five long months, during which Surrey’s place amongst the elite of the game comes under threat.

Lifting the lid on the ball tampering saga that rocks the famous club and the simmering unrest that threatens to boil over in the dressing room during his stint at the helm, beyond that Four More Weeks is a candid, thoughtful and at times humorous insight into life as a county cricket captain.

From the dressing room characters like The Human Headband and The Himbo to the spats with umpires, opponents and team-mates and the long, long days in the field captaining a team in trouble, Four More Weeks takes you into the Surrey dressing room and inside the mind of one of cricket’s most gifted and compelling players.”
