About the Book

Provocative, unflinching and refreshingly honest, not hesitating to call a spade a spade, and supported with facts and figures... Sanjay Jha gives an outsider's insight into the crazy conundrum that is Indian cricket.

Eleven explores the happenings of the recent past and examines the future of cricket. The author gives a no-holds-barred take on the poignant and dramatic fall of the Last Price, the damage inflicted by the Ganguly-Chappell fracas to the emergence of Dhoni, the flawed vision of IPL, and how the colour of cash is driving the sport that was once called a 'gentleman's game'.

Some highlights...

  • Tides of Turbulence: Every sport has controversies. But Indian cricket has perfected it into an art of the possible.
  • Chronicles of an Australian coach: How Indian cricket was incalculably damaged by the "guru".
  • Masters of the Turf: Importance of being Tendulkar, Ganguly, Dravid, Laxman and Kumble.
  • Deconstructing Dravid: Will the real Rahul please stand up?
  • Amazing wins and heart-breaking losses.
  • Teri maa ki.... and the "Obnoxious weed" effect: The ironical legacies of the two great.
  • Art of Sledging and the TRPs: How cricket will pay the cost of greed.
  • IPL: How cricket is like an obtrusive commercial.
  • Cricket's new Avatar: Goodbye connoisseur, welcome cricket consumer.

A remarkably riveting cricket book, entertaining, thought-provoking... and compelling.
