Keeping Quiet is an honest and frank account of a long and successful career, laying bare a unique personality from Nixon’s days playing for Leicestershire, Kent and England.
From Gower to Flintoff to Pietersen, Nixon has shared a dressing room with some of the biggest names in both international and domestic cricket.
Known as cricket’s most prolific ‘sledger’, Nixon has amassed more than 20 years of stories from his career at the heart of the game, the majority of which have never seen the light of day.
For the first time he now reveals them in typically outspoken style, delving into his own personal experiences of his cricketing career.
There are 24 evocative pages of colour photographs of Nixon, who won the Friends Life t20 trophy three times with Leicestershire as well as playing at a World Cup with England.
A popular figure at Grace Road in a career that spanned four decades, Nixon’s stories about his time at Leicestershire are sure to fascinate members and supporters.
The book is written by Nixon and Jon Colman, a multi-award-winning sports writer with Cumbrian Newspapers.
Jon is a fanatical England cricket fan and has followed the team and Nixon’s career closely over the years.
