But the chosen one, I think, carries the most weight of what you will yourself understand in the end. After going through whole book, it only seems that Harsha had been following Azhar throughout his journey to success as his shadow. One man wading into the bowling and hitting through the line, the other waiting for the ball and tapping it around. One savage, the other gentlemanly, but both in harmony with each other. I hope you people will not mind. The first chapter of the book has been devoted to portray the special attachment between Azhar and his maternal grandfather Mr.
Vajehuddin with whom he spent most of his childhood in Musheerabad. He was the main source of inspiration for him irrespective of who is he here and who is him. It was he only who predicted that Azhar would one day play for India and even would lead the team. Embarrassingly for Azhar, he died just a few days before he was selected for Indian team in After being selected, it was no looking back for Azhar.
It surged inside him a confidence which made him flick, drive, pull in every corner of the ground with a sheer class in his further career. As usual he bowed in greeting but very unusually in return got a drop of a rose petal on his ear. This is my best chapter of this book. Reading this one is like sitting in a park in a spring morning and experiencing the beauty of the surrounding.
Sometime after he became the captain, India was touring England and it was going to be a real test for Azhar. The first test was to be in lords. Azhar, there, was very harshly criticized for choosing to bowl on a pitch perfect for batting. But the genius of one man made a respectable line and length look hopelessly inadequate with the most charming strokes. This was the freshness that cricket is all about and in the twinkling of an eye, Azhar took the game beyond the stuffy confines of lords into the freedom of the country.
Nobody at lords that day was supporting a nation. Instead they had joined hands to soak in the beauty of the game, and as Azhar played one stroke after another, they shook their heads in disbelief and admiration………. I read with a smile on my face and joy in my heart. Sachin has been equally praised here as he made his debut in Although he saved India from the clutches of defeat throughout his career, in starting he played some of the most remarkable innings.
Harsha, in this book, is also very critical of Bishen Singh Bedi. Bedi is not at all a polite person and more often tends to speak in the most rude manner he can. I wonder how he became a part of the Indian cricket authority. Amidst all the things written above and all the events mentioned in the book, let me finally come to the point which is most relevant in the context of Azhar, Harsha and the book itself. We need someone who believes in cricket, who will not manipulate situations; essentially someone who will bring dignity to the job.
Harsha described it as the most impossible allegation and said that the seeding has been done by people who have lost money on the enormous amount of betting that takes place. Just imagine the first reaction of Harsha when he got to hear of this most sour truth.
I just and only wonder of that thunder. Upload photo files with. Image size per photo cannot exceed 10 MB. Well, in the end let me write how he ended the book in his words. He will hear the words wafting along: kisi raah pe, kisi m Well, I again wonder!! Its been long time since I heard, talk or read about one of greatest bastman of my time - Mohd.
Ofcourse, no one forget what he did in later his career but his sheer leg glance and wrist work - an amazing. I was recently watching old As far as your review and Harsha's words- it was poetic. I agree with Bishan - he is one of most stupidest person alive around cricket world.. By: patenik2 Nov 16, AM. This was an interesting read and this will be a monotonous comment. Okay, for the book, I better keep my MS since I haven't read it, but about Azhar, he was an okay player.
He did his work when the team was in trouble, lest he was a My best from the current team will surely be Dravid and Dhoni!! Leak out Read More. By: coolcritic Nov 16, AM. You have brought back sweet memories of Nizam of Hyderabad or Hyderabadi Grape as we call him. There are two sides of his cricket-On the field and outside. On the field,he is shear magic.

Hey, Thats a nice review. Well written and in-depth. Very good. Full marks to you. I agree, Bishen Bedi sucked in the past, sucks in the present and always will in the future.
Hes an idiot and God know what the media even bothers to After all, no one bothers to read it! Hi, Its a really good review. I've ordered the book myself, should be getting it soon.
From your review, it looks like Harsha has written a faboulous book. I agree about Bishan Bedi, he is such an arrogant man. By: jdods Dec 29, AM. View more comments. Read All Reviews. Thank you for sharing the requirements with us. We'll contact you shortly.
