This is the story of one man’s quest to travel around Australia playing cricket and raising funds for mental health.

Craig Dodson is a 41-year-old father of two, a writer and a true cricket tragic. A lightbulb lit up in his head at 2.00am on Day 2 of the Second Test of the 2019 Ashes Series. He realised how much he missed the game and came up with an idea… 

‘Why don’t I strap on my cricket pads again this season and play 11 games across Australia, each for a new cricket club, and then turn it into a book?’

The adventure was born!

Craig went through a battle with depression a decade ago and, thankfully, came out the other side. He committed himself to using his tour to raise funds for mental health as well as helping people along the way by sharing his story.

Craig travelled over 10,000 kilometres, pulling on the whites for a diverse mix of fantastic cricket clubs. He found himself trapped by a bushfire, travelling 1600 kilometres one day just for a Golden Duck and he was given a hand by greats of the game like Greg Chappell and Darren Lehmann.  

This is the story of an average man who followed his dream and made a difference, one cricket match at a time.
