Cricket is an Indian game accidentally discovered by the British, says Ashis Nandy, defying history, in this delightful book. He treats us to meditations on the history, philosophy, and results of the game, as well as intriguing psychological profiles of some of its greatest players. He also extends his analysis to the modern urban-industrial ethic and mass culture.
