Lost Histories of Indian Cricket studies the personalities and controversies that have shaped Indian cricket over the years and brings to life the intensity surrounding India's national game.
It may be true that that cricket today arouses more passions in India than in any other cricket playing country in the world. Yet, when it comes to writing on the history of the game, Indians have been reticent and much of the past has been obscured and lost. Majumdar here recovers this history and restores it to its rightful place in India's rich sporting heritage.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"It gives good insights into various controversies including Ranj and his `leg glance to the throne'. I must say that I thought I knew the story of Ranji and his accession to the Jam Nawanagar, but Boria Majumdar gives us a detailed history of the family plots and subplots which would do justice to a Shakespeare play."

Rev. Malcolm G. Lorimer, Lancashire CCC Archivist
