Test cricket is all about a few people playing and many people watching. But what about the cricket most of us have played-in back-gardens and by-lanes, in school and in college, for a club or for one’s employer-which not many have watched and nobody, at least in India, has written about?

This book looks back fondly upon such cricket played at various levels, all of which lead upwards, narrowing inexorably, to the apex. The author may not have reached there-otherwise you would have known of him as a player-but he ahs enjoyed every run he scored, every wicket taken, every catch held. That enjoyment he has sought to convey on each page here.


Sujit Mukherjee (b 1930) has played cricket on many grounds and at various levels, read more cricket books and articles than he ahs written, and occasionally been a Test-match commentator on radio and television. At least once every season he goes to the ground to watch a game being played, just to assure himself that this is what the real thing is like. A former university teacher, he also writes literary criticism and translates from Bangla into English.
