My Cricket Hero: XII Indians On Their XII Favourite Cricketers

My Cricket Hero: XII Indians On Their XII Favourite Cricketers

Regular price Rs. 195.00 Rs. 0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

For the first time, a book on Indian cricket heroes, chosen by 12 prominent Indians, all with links to Indian cricket.

Edited by famed cricket author Gulu Ezekiel, the contributors are from a wide range of professions—the law, journalism, publishing, medicine, etc--though all with strong cricket connections.

There have been books on cricketing heroes before, but none exclusively dealing with Indian cricket and cricketers. The idea of this book therefore was to get Indians prominent in their fields to choose their favourite Indian cricketers.

The book is thus unique and also contains never-before-seen photos.
