Synopsis

Growing up in Bolton, Ronnie Irani was good at all sports - football, tennis, basketball and even kick-boxing. But he excelled at cricket and after several schoolboy records, was snapped up as a professional by Lancashire aged just 16. Frustrated at constantly playing in the 'stiffs', Ronnie took his courage in both hands and moved to Essex - even though he was only vaguely aware it was somewhere near the Dartford Tunnel. Under the guidance of Keith Fletcher and Graham Gooch, he became one of the country's all-time great players, went on to captain them to three trophies and became a legend with the fans. Despite being picked out as international quality by the likes of Geoffrey Boycott, Richie Benaud and Ian Botham, Ronnie was often overlooked by England, but each time he battled back and earned a recall, including winning a place in the 2003 World Cup squad.

Ronnie is typically honest about his relationships in the game, both good and bad; he releates how he used unconventional medical advice to overcome career-threatening injuries; he takes you out to the crease and back in the dressing room and he gives you vivid insights into the humour and the heartache, the trials and the triumphs of being a top sports star. And time and time again he shows why he became a favourite with cricket supporters around the world and why Frank Dick also said: 'Telling Ronnie Irani that what he wants to achieve can't be done is like lighting a fuse.'

Ronnie Irani grew up in Lancashire and after making his league cricket debut at 13, joined his home county three years later. But it was his move to Essex in 1994 that saw his career take off. He became county captain and a firm favourite with the fans. He also represented England in tests and One Day Internationals, including the 2003 World Cup. Ronnie's charity work earned him the Freedom of the City of London in 2002. He was forced to retire through injury in 2007 and has since started a new career as a broadcaster with talkSPORT, co-presenting the breakfast show every morning with Alan Brazil. Ronnie is married to childhood sweetheart Lorraine and the pair have two daughters, Simone and Maria; not forgetting the dobermans, Eric and Zara.
