Timothy Abraham is a journalist from Liverpool. He has written for many UK newspapers and most frequently for The Times, Independent and Daily Telegraph. A keen cricketer, Timothy secured German citizenship via his father Ingo only to see his hopes of representing the Deutsche Cricket Nationalmannschaft dashed due to lack of ability. It piqued, however, an interest in cricket in more offbeat locations and he has co-edited the Cricket Round the World section of Wisden Cricketers' Almanack since 2012. Not to be confused with the former Sky Sports cricket reporter of the same name, Timothy has also written for The Cricketer magazine and contributed to BBC radio and online coverage of cricket. He took his one, and to date only, hat-trick in El Salvador.
James Coyne is the assistant editor of The Cricketer, where he has written for and edited the world's leading cricket magazine since 2016. He was a contributor to The Cricketer Anthology of the Ashes (Allen & Unwin). Before that he was the assistant editor on six editions of Wisden Cricketers' Almanack, and continues to co-edit the Cricket Round the World section alongside Timothy. Inspired by their experiences on several intrepid cricket tours to mainland Europe - arguably James's lasting cricketing legacy will be as the first wicket to fall in a competitive match in Serbia - and a burning interest in Latin America, he embarked on this book. He also plays for his local club in Bedfordshire. He is married to Baiba, and they have a young daughter, Hannah.
