About the Book

Brim Full of Passion follows Wasim, the son of Kashmiri immigrants from the streets of Small Heath to leafy Edgbaston where the young Wasim breaks in through a fence to watch England play Pakistan. Fast forward one year and he's there legitimately batting for the Warwickshire under 13's.

This book takes the reader into dressing rooms from Edgbaston to Sydney, to Kashmir where a teenage Wasim goes to bury his father; onto the field with Mike Atherton and Wasim Akram, deep into the heart of the pro game where players share the joys of success but feed of each other's failures. It charts Wasim's extraordinary journey from ghetto to county circuit, from one man coaching outfit with an office in his bedroom to his job as Operations Director and then Chief Executive of the Cricket Foundation and his role with the Chance to Shine programme.
