David Green is the brain behind this blog, which is intended to offer an irreverent and acerbic opinion on the wonderful game of cricket - the sport that God would play if he wasn't so busy.
The Reverse Sweep blog was born in December 2009 and has already been named as one of The Times 50 leading cricket web sites in the world in May 2010.
Since first seeing David Gower hit a glorious and effortless cover drive as a small boy, David has been hooked on the great game. As a useful schoolboy and club cricketer, he harboured wistful dreams of emulating Douglas Jardine in captaining England to Ashes victory in Australia and annoying the locals into the bargain.
But alas, England’s loss was literature’s gain as David wasn’t quite talented enough and had to settle for the next best thing of watching, writing and blogging about cricket. Having relocated to France with his young family, David is also trying to get the locals interested in the great game with little success to date.
