Following Peter Oborne's award-winning global success with Wounded Tiger: A History of Cricket in Pakistan comes a new volume, written with Richard Heller, to celebrate the extraordinary story of Pakistan cricket.

In White on Green, we discover a rich tapestry of stories about cricket in all its forms that will fascinate all who want to understand more about that country. We hear from the players of Dera Ismail Khan, who appeared when their side lost by a world-record margin of an innings and 851 runs; and from the Khan sisters, who helped develop the women's game in Pakistan, despite the threats from those who believed their actions to be immoral. But we also hear from the greats of Pakistan cricket, past and present, who provide a revealing picture of the special challenges they have faced, both at home and abroad.

Written with great warmth, affection and insight, White on Green is an evocative portrait of a country that is too often condemned and too little understood by outsiders. It shows how the spirit of cricket can help overcome the most difficult environments and bring people together.
