9788184953008: Sachin: Born to Bat

The Journey of Cricket s Ultimate Centurion

Sachin: Born to Bat by veteran journalist Khalid A-H Ansari and edited by Clayton Murzello is a unique ode to contemporary cricket s finest batsman.

In the words of the author: This is an attempt to impartially probe the crucial mental, physical and emotional ingredients of a cricketing god . I have tried to turn the laser on the maestro s persona - innumerable blemishes and all - to prevent the book from degenerating into a shabaash, wah-wah hagiography. For all his splendiferous achievements, Sachin has also shown that he is a mere mortal with feet of clay - witness his run-ins with authority, cricketing and civil .

Despatches to MiD DAY, one of Asia s leading newspapers, from some of the world s most famous names in cricket writing - Ayaz Memon, Harsha Bhogle, Ian Chappell, Mike Coward, Peter Roebuck and other luminaries - grace the pages of this book.

Tributes from cricket s most famous personalities including Tendulkar s Team India teammates and coaches make this publication invaluable in helping cricket enthusiasts understand what makes Sachin the peerless champion he is.

The book also captures critical moments of Tendulkar s wondrous cricketing career from photographers who have followed him throughout his distinguished career.
