Synopsis

When Tom Rodwell embarked on a cricketing tour of India, he had only ever thought of the game as great fun.



But the simple joy of the local street kids when his team donated their kit to them made him realise that it could be more than that.



By turns touching and amusing, and imbued with a deep love of the game, Third Man in Havana is the story of the charity cricket programmes `Major' Tom Rodwell has helped run around the world, and of the people he has encountered along the way.



From Be'er Sheva Cricket Club pavilion in Israel - a converted nuclear bomb shelter, useful in the face of Hamas' regular rocket attacks - to a game of tapeball cricket with ex-Tamil Tiger child soldiers behind barbed wire in Sri Lanka, Rodwell discovered that the heart of the game is beating fast in countries more used to conflict than cricket.



Third Man in Havana is a wonderfully positive story, revealing that the spirit of cricket is alive and well.
