Bill Frindall, or Bearders, is well known to cricket fans from Test Match Special. Bearders took over the scoring for Test Match Special in June 1966, at the First Test against West Indies at Old Trafford. He was nicknamed the Bearded Wonder by Brian Johnston because of his encyclopedic knowledge of cricket scores and statistics. In this wonderful recording, Bearders recalls the voices and characters of Test Match Special in his own unique style. He looks back on the funniest moments in the commentary box, and remembers the great characters he has worked with. Cricket's Bearded Wonder is a fitting tribute to a much-loved cricketing legend.
