Out of the Box: Watching the Game We Love

 
9780143417507: Out of the Box: Watching the Game We Love

India s Richie Benaud equivalent, the guru of cricket from India. Adam Gilchrist Aptly described as India s first non-playing cricket celebrity , Harsha Bhogle has captured the entire gamut of Indian cricket in his weekly column in the Indian Express: from the advent of Dhoni to the decline of the Fab Four; from the art of coaching the Indian team to the BCCI s money-mindedness; from cricketers shooting commercials just before a match to the nail-biting finish of many an IPL clash. Out of the Box brings together the very best of Harsha s writing, in a book that will be a veritable delight to any cricket fan. Knowledgeable, frank and witty, and with a sense of drama comparable to that of cricket itself, Harsha is a master at evoking the many moods of the game. And he is at his best when paying tribute to cricketing greats: Lara, Jayasuriya, Ganguly, Laxman, Dravid, Sehwag and the incomparable Tendulkar. As he follows India s fortunes on the cricket field at home and overseas, Harsha asks the question that is on everyone s lips today: can India really be no.1 in all three forms of the game? The answer lies in our history and in the pages of Out of the Box.

Book Description Penguin Books India Pvt Ltd, India, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: N/A. Brand New Book. Yes, there was a skeleton in the cupboard, and although I never saw it, I played a small part in the events that followed its discovery .This brilliant new collection of stories by one of India s best-loved storytellers richly evokes Dehradun of the 1940s, with its quaint cinema halls and crumbling villas, its modest chaat-shops and ubiquitous tongas. But, as young Ruskin - the narrator in these interconnected tales - soon discovers, not all is as it seems in this sleepy town. Behind the tranquil facade, Dehra is home to a cast of colourful characters: from plucky old women to possible murderers. The Canal is a joyful tribute to adolescent mischief and adult resolve, in which a group of roguish boys must face the consequences of antagonizing the much-feared Miss Gamla. Over the Wall celebrates the resilience and hard-won dignity of a man ravaged by leprosy as he struggles to come to terms with his malady. The dashing young army captain in At Green s Hotel might be the perfect gentleman - or a murderer. And in The Skeleton in the Cupboard , an old scandal is revived following a chance discovery, leading to wholly unexpected results. Bookseller Inventory # AMO9780143417507
