Cricket at Fever Pitch/Khalid A-H Ansari

"Khalid A-H Ansari's no-holds-barred writings on cricket have been respected, followed and discussed all over the cricket-playing world for 40 years.

Cricket At Fever Pitch encapsulates the passing parade of Indian cricket from 1968 to 2005. It is also a KHALIDOSCOPE of the highs and lows, characters, angels and demons of international cricket. From Ajit Wadekar's team's epic 1970-71 win in the West Indies to Rahul Dravid's resurgent team India, Ansari has been an uncompromising watchdog of Indian cricket.

The author has a burning passion for the well being of Indian sport and has single-mindedly championed the cause of players in their unending collision with self-serving officialdom.

To see Indian cricket find a place in the sun has been his abiding magnificent obsession.

A trusted friend and confidant of players, umpires, even administrators, in Cricket At Fever Pitch, the author presents an insider's dressing-room view of memorable matches, personalities and events in India and abroad, and interacts with the legends who have made cricket a religion in the country."
