From an early age cricket and writing have been a passion for Trevor Chesterfield; along with these twin influences has been the travelling bug and regularly living outside the comfort zone. Such emotive and inspirational events has enabled him to become a player (in his youth), later a first-class umpire, for a brief byzantine period a war correspondent in Vietnam in 1965. Now into his 55th year as a cricket writer/journalist/author he has written on 220 Tests, about 400 ODIs, a dozen of the new fad T20s, written five books on the game and published author in fiction. Apart from New Zealand, he has worked and lived in Australia, England/Europe, South Africa/Africa and now Sri Lanka/India. Currently working on a book of his 55 years as a journalist.
