5.0 out of 5 stars An eventful trip down memory lane, 19 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Zindabad: English Chronicles by Kamran Abbasi is a collection of writing on the never-dull topic of the Pakistan cricket team and its tumultuous relationship with the England cricket team.
The articles are collated from a range of different sources and thus vary in style and content, thus taken as a whole they make a provide a scrapbook of memories. Mr Abbasi has a writing style that is simultaneously authoritative and compassionate which makes this, in his own words 'labour of love' a pleasure to read. From the accounts of Imran Khan's pride and passion to the ever-entertaining antics of Shahid Afridi, to the shrewd brilliance of Javed Mianadad, this book is sure to delight the cricket fan, and in particular followers of Pakistan.

While this book brings back memories so vividly, Pakistan fans will acknowledge that the memories are not always so pleasant, but they are part and parcel of the history of Pakistan-England cricket. I recommend this book wholeheartedly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fundamentally flawed and inherently biased, 11 Feb. 2013
A selective view on a topical issue of great importance. This amateurish piece of writing adds nothing new to the issue, but rather exposes a deep-rooted and logically indefensible bias. I recommend spending ones time searching for the Loch Ness monster may be more rewarding, than reading this drivel.
