Author and cricket fanatic, Kersi Meher-Homji, exposes the rock star underbelly of cricket, from the "Bodyline" series of 1932-33 to the "Bollyline" series of 2007-08. Through the chucking and ball-tampering accusations and match throwing, the on-field kicking, bribery and drug taking allegations, the gentle game of cricket has shown its other side - the dark, murky one. Going back as far 1877 there are many incidents covered, including the World Series Cricket revolution; the famous underarm incident; how the IPL sizzled and fizzled; how the Doliveira affair dismantled apartheid; and the tragedies of Woolmer and Roebuck.
