    Partha Bhaduri, Rohit Brijnath, Shantanu Guha Ray, Ayaz Memon, Sharda Ugra may never have viciously slashed the ball through the slips or ripped a forehand down the line, but they are among India's finest sports writers. In this absorbing collection, The Best of Indian Sports Writing, sixteen of the finest sports stories not only capture some great moments but also bring together some outstanding writers. From the methodical Rahul Dravid to the insular Abhinav Bindra, from the 1982 Asian Games hockey final to the inaugural T20 World Cup, many personalities and moments feature in this unique sports anthology.

    Must Buy for Sports Readers

    I must say I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the title The Best of Indian Sports Writing. It's a maturing of the Indian market to see a sports anthology hit the stands.
    Reading it was a pleasure especially the stories on Eden Gardens, Paes winning the Olympic bronze medal and the story titled The Bastard Child which brings fore India winning the T20 World Cup.
    I hope we see this as an annual anthology with more and more authors finding space besides the 16 that have been featured.
