Rest of the World


Mike Yardy is one of only 11 English cricketers to reach the absolute pinnacle of his profession. In 2010 he was a member of the team which won the World T20, England's only triumph in a global tournament. Having led Sussex to two titles in his first year as captain in 2009, he was an established member of England's one-day side. Yardy was at the top of his game, but all the time he was riddled with self-doubt, he had been suffering from depression since 2008. Hard Yards is a sporting autobiography with a real difference; the story of a courageous sportsman who confronted his problems head-on and now, having retired in 2015, is helping other sportsmen learn to live with mental illness through his ambassadorial work with the mental health charity MIND.
