Gary Naylor decided not to play football for Everton and, in 1977, played cricket for Hightown instead, where he honed his commentating skills by talking through every ball but one of every Hightown innings. (Do keep up!)
He was delighted in 2010 to find people listening for the very first time and has been a guerilla since. His cricket writing appears regularly at theguardian.com and Spin Cricket. He is chief reviewer for Broadway World. Find him @garynaylor999 and he'll talk cricket to you!
