You need a dictionary with you while reading this book unless you are an Oxford graduate of english literature or hold an equal profile or have extraordinarily strong vocabulary. Toughest possible words have been used to describe incidents and the writer's outlook, whereas easy words understood by all would have served the purpose well. You might lose interest midway. But if you could finish, you hopefully would agree that it was a decent read.
One of my most liked cricket books, and I've read a few. Apart from the wonderful series that is covered, which it is always a joy to read about, due to it's historical and cricketing relevance, the writer's command of the language and the culture is a real treat. Must read if you are a cricket fan, and an absolute must read if you are an Indian cricket fan.
Check out, especially, the mystery of the famous tape-bowl variety of cricket that ensures a steady supply of Pakistani fast bowlers, and the absolutely wonderful anecdotes of Mr. Bhattacharya's experiences in Pakistan and the hospitality he enjoyed, all put together by an intelligent and knowledgeable cricket fan.
