One of the most over-used words in the cricketing dictionary is "great", because there are very few players in any country who qualify. It is in any case a subjective view and all of us are limited by the number of players we have seen over the year when judging earlier players, we have to take the word of people We trust, who have in fact seen them play. My view of Indian batsmen is that there have been a lot of very good ones, some able to play in all. Conditions, some best when playing on their own pitches.I believe there are three "great Indian batsmen and I put them in order of appearance on the Test scene - Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid. Tendulkar and Gavaskar have given me many days of great enjoyment and Dravid in recent times has played some wonderful innings. Attributes common to all three are courage and clear thinking and an ability to carry the attack to the opposition by keeping a step ahead of the bowle' Richie Benaud The first Indian to score five double centuries in test cricket each of those five scores higher than the previous one.... The first Indian to score four centuries in four consecutive test innings...The only contemporary Indian cricketer to take 100 catches in test cricket...The first batsman in Test history to score a Test century in every Test-playing nation. One of the highest batting averages in Test history...

This is not a scorebook, nor is it an accumulation of facts or the extension of a globally recognised brand. This is the first in-depth and comprehensive biography of Sachin Tendulkar, and it puts Sachin, the cricketer and the human being, in perspective. Tendulkar's story is told here grippingly, with a wealth of rare, unpublished anecdotes that throw fresh light on a remarkable career. The book probes the psychological growth of the world's leading batsman, examines the historical forces that shaped his personal and cricketing character, analyses his cricket planning and actions and evaluates the history the man himself has created, whether by making his Test debut at 16 or making his 50th century in Test cricket. It just as carefully chronicles and discusses his disappointments, failures and the controversies that have cropped up around his name, and provides an insight into Tendulkar the man, who has for so long been kept from public view. Above all, the book places Tendulkar in the context of the international cricket tradition and determines his exact place in world cricket history. Capacious and yet crisp, Sachin Tendulkar: A Definitive Biography is Tendulkar in totality.

Kevin Pietersen is a renowned cricketing renegade and one of the greatest - and most controversial - cricketers of his generation.Born in South Africa in 1980 to an Afrikaner father and English mother, he made his first-class cricket debut at the age of 17. In 1999, while playing with KwaZulu Natal, he impressed former England captain Nasser Hussain and the following year signed for Nottinghamshire where he had a stunning debut season.He moved to Shane Warne's Hampshire in 2004 and went on to make his international debut the same year, soon becoming a cornerstone of the England side, and playing a key role in the thrilling victory in the 2005 Ashes. His England career looked in jeopardy however after his short, and extremely controversial, stint as England captain in 2008 ended in his sacking. But Pietersen, never one to be kept down for long, cemented his comeback with a series of wonderful performances that led to be being named the Player of the Tournament in England's 2010 World Twenty20 win.Having left Surrey, Pietersen's career had another strange twist in the summer of 2012 when, amid a dismal home series against South Africa, he first retired from one-day internationals and was then dropped from the side for allegedly texting the opposition derogatory comments about his own team-mates.Finally back in the England fold, and fresh off a match-winning 186 in India, Pietersen looks in control once again. But, with him, controversy is never more than a switch-hit away.

Through the long 20th century, Indian South Africans lived under the whip of settler colonialism and white minority rule, which saw the passing of a slew of legislation that circumscribed their freedom of movement, threatened repatriation, and denied them citizenship, all the while herding them into racially segregated townships. This volume chronicles the broad outlines of this history. Taking the story into the present, it provides an analysis of how Indian South Africans have responded to changes wrought by the remarkable collapse of apartheid and the holding of the first democratic elections in 1994. Drawing upon archival records, in-depth interviews, and ethnography, this study examines the ways in which Indian South Africans define themselves and the world around them, and how they are defined by others. It tells of the incredible journey of Indian South Africans, many of whom are fourth and fifth generation, towards being recognized as citizens in the land of their birth and how, while often attracted by and seeking to explore their roots in India, they continue to dig deeper roots in African soil.

Much like its commissioner Mr Lalit Modi, IPL from the very beginning has always been mired in controversies of all imaginable kinds. From Vijay Mallyas sacking of the team coach Charu Sharma for the teams poor performance in season one to the grand auction of international players for season two in Fort Aguda Beach Resort in Goa, Modi has been able to keep the interest alive by successfully marrying money with sports. This is a new kind of cricket, where players are auctioned and teams and players are owned by frnanchise owners. But this is also the cricket where players from U-19 get a chance to play with Sachin Tendulkar or Shane Warne. IPL: An Inside Story takes a look at almost all the aspects of IPL from who actually first thought of such a tournament to the process of choosing the franchise owners, and from the socio-economic impact of the IPL on Indian society to the politics of shifting the venue of season two to South Africa.

Part biography, part personal reflection and part investigation, Chasing Shadows: The Life And Death Of Peter Roebuck will celebrate Roebuck's immense achievements as a player, captain, writer, broadcaster and philanthropist, but not shy away from the controversies that plagued his life and hang so darkly and with such uncertainty over his shocking death. Initial investigations have already uncovered details previously unknown to the public, while some of the cricket world's giant figures have volunteered due praise - and criticism - for this remarkable figure. Tim Lane and co-author Elliot Cartledge will explore the 'Roebuck phenomenon', how this seemingly awkward and eccentric intellectual giant became, briefly, an English cricket captain, was embroiled in a long-standing feud with the likes of Ian Botham and Viv Richards, gained adulation throughout the sub-continent and Australasia and established what was essentially a homespun charity to put scores of impoverished Africans through secondary schooling and university. Along with the recollections and revelations of colleague and confidante Tim Lane, the book will feature in its telling the likes of Ian Botham, Viv Richards, Ian Chappell, Mark Nicholas, Steve Waugh, Rahul Dravid, Ricky Ponting, Kerry O'Keefe, Martin Crowe, Mike Coward, Jim Maxwell and many others, including members of the Roebuck family. "The book has one supreme quality: it is fair-minded." Martin Flanagan, Sydney Morning Herald "This first-class work of investigative reporting tracks down key figures who shed crucial light on Roebuck's life, while resisting pat conclusions." Steven Carroll, Canberra Times "This tantalising kaleidoscope of a book, which honours the complexity of the man while rigorously pursuing the truth." Steven Carroll, Canberra Times "There could be no more difficult person to interperet" Tim Lane, Sunday Age
