Sinopsis:

Indian cricket is not simply a sport: it is a way of life for a billion people. It is the only symbol of nationalism that has currency in all parts of the country alike. With cricketers standing forth as the new icons of a nation that is beginning to break into the global market, cricket has emerged as the new aspiration of the country’s youth. And with the influx of multinational sponsors, who brought the game into the forefront of the national economy, cricket in India today is an industry employing close to 500,000 people.

For an institution whose history is an unforgettable tale of passion, ecstasy, drama, intrigue, scandal, agony and excitement spread over a couple of centuries, it is natural to expect multiple pictorial journeys. There have been none until now. This, the first Illustrated History of Indian Cricket, is a frame-by-frame unfolding of what is a fascinating century-old saga.

A mine of information for sports buffs, connoisseurs and academics alike, it replete with rare photographs and newspaper clips from hitherto unused and unheard of private collections. A celebration of the spirit of cricket in India.

Descripción Lustre Press/Roli Books, New Delhi, India. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: New. Cricket has been the binding spirit for a fractious India; it has been opium and adrenalin, valium and vitamin. It has been a vehicle for social mobility and has helped promote tolerance and secularism. The story of Indian cricket is the story of a society, a tapestry woven as a permanent work in progress by a nation in search of a definition. This special updated edition of The Illustrated History of Indian Cricket is an attempt to tell that story, through pictures, many of which have not been seen in public before. The story of the highs and lows of Indian cricket, with all its oddities and eccentricities - how we reinvented a game and found ourselves reflected in it. A mine of information for sports buffs, connoisseurs and academicians alike, the book is a frame-by-frame unfolding of an institution whose history is a fascinating tale of passion, drama, intrigue, scandal, agony and excitement spread over a century. All the brightest stars of Indian cricket can be found here, from Ranji and C K Nayudu to Vijay Merchant and Sunil Gavaskar; and from Kapil Dev and Sachin Tendulkar to Saurav Ganguly and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Every major milestone along the journey is covered, from reducing England to 19-3 in India's very first Test at Lords in 1932, to the famous victories against West Indies and England in 1971; and from winning the 1983 World Cup to repeating the performance at the inaugural T20 World Cup in South Africa in 2007. It describes how innovations like the IPL have contributed to the game's popularity and financial fortunes, and ends with the prophecy that come March 2010 when the IPL returns to India, the global constituency cultivated in 2009 will help make the tournament a truly global Indian export - India's only truly international sporting brand.
