Review

This book is awesome.i am loving every bit of it,.Everyone playing a part in his life has a special place in the book.the best thing about this book is that it has got amazing stats of his career in a very different way go for it. --By Himank Shekhar on 21 October 2016

Virat is a work in progress. He is an engrossing character, who will fight tooth and nail for his partners, and take on the opposition with a blend of aggression and calmness. Many opponents have discovered his anger in a verbal dose to assert his presence. He firmly believes in giving it back. His middle-finger wagging act in Australia in 2012 was an example of how Virat would not accept things lying down. --By Anupam Rajmani on 9 October 2016

COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY !!!

I bought this with great expectations to get into the untapped untold unheard stories of a great cricketer but there isn't much which one wouldn't have heard of about VIrat...I did not find it engaging or inspiring......

An opportunity wasted---not just on the writing aspect but on a more broader and personal level to let the readers know this icon from up, close and personal and provide the readers with an entertaining and inspiring read......

To say I am disappointed would be a gross understatement. A book on Virat, written by a senior cricket scribe can be so much more than this dull, insipid narration of facts from Virat's life. Needed a story-teller to tell this story, not a reporter.

By Anupam Rajmani TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 9 October 2016
Format: Paperback
Virat is a work in progress. He is an engrossing character, who will fight tooth and nail for his partners, and take on the opposition with a blend of aggression and calmness. Many opponents have discovered his anger — in a verbal dose to assert his presence. He firmly believes in giving it back. His middle-finger wagging act in Australia in 2012 was an example of how Virat would not accept things lying down. Repeatedly taunted by the Sydney crowd, he showed the middle finger. ‘I agree cricketers don’t have to retaliate. What when the crowd says the worst things about your mother and sister. The worst I’ve heard, never heard crap like that. EVER,’ he had tweeted. He was unrelenting in his stance and this was seen as the new trend in Indian cricket. There was a place for aggression, and young guns like Virat would not shy away from demonstrating it.

Within a year, Virat once again exploded on the cricket field, but without a bat this time. The Chinnaswamy Stadium witnessed a Virat-Gambhir spat that left the audience stunned. Two Delhi and India teammates going at each other was an unsightly spectacle, but accepted as part of the game in modern times.

A cricketer must be seen as an expressive individual on the field, what with the TV cameras following every moment and beaming it across the world. Virat, in this case, was steering RCB to the target of 155 in the IPL clash with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), when he lost his wicket. Having slammed two sixes off Delhi teammate Pradeep Sangwan, also his India under-19 colleague, Virat attempted to slice L. Balaji, but only holed out to Eoin Morgan.

As he appeared to walk back to the dressing room, something snapped in him and he moved towards Gambhir, who was equally menacing, while confronting a livid Virat.

Mark of a bad book.....repetition of facts and this book has so many of it, really sad. No chronology or logic followed in the chapters. Does not tell anything about the subject that we did not already know. Absolutely no anecdotes or anything about the things / events that make the man he is today. Nothing on the team dynamics and his captaincy. A very outside look with average language skills. Thoroughly disappointing.
