Interesting social commentary on Indian cricket
3 June 2019
This book is not about cricket, it's not about records, not even a commentary about a single match, it's much more, it's Social history of cricket in India. It tells interesting tale of influence of cricket on culture and politics and influence of culture and politics on cricket. Book is divided into four parts, race, caste, religion and nation. Last part is more about the toxic cocktail of religion and nationalism while race and caste is related to colonial India.
