In 2002, Ramachandra Guha published his pioneering and widely acclaimed social history of Indian cricket, A Corner of a Foreign Field. Now that India is the acknowledged centre of world cricket, with its Test ream currently ranked number one in the world, and with the Indian Premier League emerging as the most successful and spectacular cricket tournament ever held, Guha has brought the narrative up to date. He writes of the commercial marketing of Indian cricket and cricketers, of the social appeal of twenty/twenty cricket, and of the continuing tensions, on and off the playing field, between India and Pakistan. This magisterial and original work thus uses the medium of sport to explore wider questions of race, caste, religion, nationalism, and the market. It is essential reading for anyone interested in cricket and/or India..

`Fascinating . . . absorbingly told and with much charm' Independent
