About the Book: Cricket World Cup: The Indian Challenge

This is a riveting read for a cricket lover, especially an India fan. A remarkable, eyewitness history of the Cricket World Cup from an Indian perspective the book details the little­known story of Indias turning point in one­day cricket in Guyana, when Kapil Devs team in March 1983 beat the previously unassailable West Indies in their backyard. It also reminds readers of the tremor that was felt in the cricketing world when India repeated the success at Manchester in the World Cup 10 weeks later, before defeating the same side in the final two weeks later. It relives Indias forgotten triumph in the 1985 World Championship and the rekindling of hope when Sourav Gangulys team finished as runners-up in the 2003 World Cup. The book further depicts how MS Dhoni planned victory, together with Sachin Tendulkar inspiring Yuvraj Singh to perform at his best, in the 2011 tournament. The book is embellished by illuminating reports and scores on each India match and every semi-final and final in the World Cup.

About the Author: Ashis Ray

Ashis Ray is arguably the worlds senior­most still active cricket broadcaster, having made his debut as a test match commentator on All India Radio in 1975 at the age of 24, which probably makes him the worlds youngest test match commentator on record as well. Born in Vienna and educated in Darjeeling and Kolkata, he was the only Asian ball-byball commentator on BBCs coverage of the 1983 World Cup, in which India famously upset the then invincible West Indies to lift the trophy. He has also analysed or commentated on cricket on ABC Australia, Sky Sports UK, SONY Asia, CBC Caribbean and Doordarshan India. He has written on the game for every major British and Indian newspaper as well and lectured on it at the University of Oxford. His home entertainment video, Great Moments of Indian Cricket 1932-86, released by HMV and Virgin in 1987, became an international bestseller and is today recognised as a classic. His 2008 documentary, 1983: Indias World Cup, released on television in various countries, was shortlisted for a BAFTA nomination
