Description

In this absorbing and informative book, Tom Alter and Ayaz Memon, both passionate admirers and students of the game, relive India's ten most exciting World Cup matches between 1993 and 1996. Packed with anecdotes and interesting facts, this book is indispensable for the cricket-fan.

Writing with nostalgia and insight they recreate some of the most magical moments of Indian cricket history: Kapil's spectacular 175 not out against Zimbabwe at Tunbridge Wells in '83; the finals of that World Cup at Lord's, when Mohinder Amarnath trapped last man Michael Holding lbw to beat the West Indies and stun the cricketing world; Chetan Sharma's brilliant hat-trick, the first in the history of the World Cup, against New Zealand in '92; and Jadeja's pyrotechnics against the Pakistani quickies in the final 'death' overs of our quarter-final battle against Pakistan in '96.
