9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Niranjan Rao on 26 Nov. 2006
Format: Hardcover
This book appears to be an attempt to make a quick buck off the craze for cricket Indians and PIOs all over the world are known for. During his visits to various libraries and by virtue of his contacts, Dr. Mazumdar has come across old pictures and an old document or two of marginal relevance to cricket. Lo and behold, this forms the basis of this book. One wishes there were more insights into Indian cricket as revealed in Mushtaq Ali's letter to CK Nayudu during India's Englad tour in the 1940's. The biggest revelation is that cricket in India was probably first played in what is now Bangaldesh. The tortuos foreword should be a lesson on how not to write a foreword. The write-up for each decade is in the form of brief "executive summaries". None of the chapters has any serious depth. Altogther this book makes for a rather unsatifying read. Your money is better spent elsehere.
