9781785311178: The Corridor of Uncertainty: How Cricket Mended a Torn Nation

In 1979, Afghanistan erupted into one of the most brutal civil wars ever. The fighting lasted almost a decade, throwing the country into a period of political instability, harsh leadership, and extreme danger. Hundreds of thousands of civilians died, and millions relocated to refugee camps. The rest of the world began to believe that violence would always define Afghans. However, deep in the refugee camps of Pakistan, displaced native Afghan children had a dream to unite their country once again with peace. The solution was disguised in the game of cricket. These children began to learn cricket, and persevered against the danger, criticism, and unrest to create the first-ever Afghan national cricket team. With unrivaled access to the team and players during the 2015 Cricket World Cup, Nihar Suthar tells the story of their inspiring journey to change Afghanistan in one of the most under-told, heart-warming sports stories of all time.

About the Author:

Nihar Suthar is an award-winning writer, covering inspirational stories around the world. He strives to publish works that break the status quo. Suthar was born in Lewistown, Pennsylvania, and graduated from Cornell University in January 2016.

Review:

"I've read cricket books from WG Grace to Sachin Tendulkar, but nothing has been more inspiring than Suthar's The Corridor of Uncertainty, and the story of how cricket helped mend a torn nation. Despite the Taliban, deaths, bombs and poverty, and even though Osama bin Laden is mentioned more than Bradman, it's an uplifting story." --Joseph Romanos, New Zealand Journalist and Author

"This most heart-warming of stories should be read by not just cricket fans but anyone who believes in good over evil and a triumph for perseverance and determination. Because of the tremendous hardships encountered along the way, it would be wrong to describe it as a fairy tale but, if anyone who reads this sheds a tear, they won't be alone." --AndrewRobertsCricketStatistics.com

"This is an inspirational story of young men from refugee camps who form the first ever Afghan national cricket team. Nihar Suthar endured threats to get the incredible tale you now hold in your hands." --James Bradley, New York Times Best Selling Author, Flags of Our Fathers, The China Mirage

"A superb book and one that deserves to be widely read. There is absolutely no reason why it would not appeal to every single one of the millions of readers who made The Kite Runner a best seller. Has the potential to be the biggest selling book about the game of cricket ever written. The most thought provoking book on any subject I have read in years." --CricketWeb.net

"Remarkable. A triumph over adversity and of the human spirit, an inspirational story that should be on everyone's list of 'must reads'. A multi-dimensional book. An extraordinary read and one that I would heartily recommend to any cricket fan." --PeakFan's Derbyshire Cricket Blog
