A wonderfully entertaining read for cricket fans and lovers of the game.
Having experienced exhilarating moments in fandom for nearly five decades across four continents, Ranjan Mellawa insists that cricket is a greater story than told by a scorecard. As a roving devotee, he has witnessed all six Cricket World Cup finals in ODI and T20 that Sri Lanka have featured in. A gripping narrative recalls unique events and off-field anecdotes, some involving famous cricketers. Insights into Sri Lanka's pre-Test days followed by a fascinating account of its troubled latter-day cricket administration.
