the funniest cricket book I've ever read,
By A Customer
This review is from: Balham to Bollywood (Paperback)
This has to be the funniest most enjoyable cricket read I've come across. The Indian location gives it extra spice, and the Bollywood backdrop some extra glamour, but this is at heart a genuine cricket lover's treat. The build up to the climactic cricket match parallels that of the film Lagaan which the author has a part in, and it is hilarious stuff, as you see the stars of the movie losing sight of the job at hand and obsessing about the 'real' match between the Indians and the visiting Brits. I laughed out loud time after time, and recommend this to any lover of the great game.
