Rich in HistoryA good book, with the attempt by the author to present Indian cricket events with an unbiased point of view. The book primarily deals with the relation between cricket and politics (based on caste, religion ), the independence movement and India pakistan relations. Primarily deals with the Bombay quadrangular.

The origins of cricket in IndiaWhy did India start playing cricket, a primarily English game? Why was the bombay quadrangular tournament so important, both politically and sportingly? You will also be introduced to P Baloo. After reading this book, I am of the view that he is the biggest and most unsung hero of Indian cricket. Thanks to the author for highlighting his contribution to Indian cricket.

How a game can hold the nationThis is a great book . Though i had read quite a few books on cricket including some of gavaskar's and sandeep patel I really felt astounded by the research done by Mr. Guha .... The book amply illustrates how the game of cricket though of foreign origin came to India .... how it developed communal feelings .. how an untouchable was the first great superstar of Indian Cricket .. and though in-spite of our aversion to anything foreign this so called British sport became our National Sport leaving Hockey
