Cricket

One - third of all of India's International runs have been scored by batsmen who came through the ranks of Bombay cricket. Bombay has won the Ranji trophy forty times, fifteen of them in a row. Bombay batsmen have scored 461 centuries and fifty - eight double centuries in the tournament. The story of how the city of Bombay - almost the birthplace of Indian cricket - has consistently dominated the game of an entire country makes for a captivating tale. A million broken windows is the tale of a cricketing culture that is infused with the spirit of Bombay. Replete with anecdotes and analysis, it explores various leagues, tournaments, players and fans and the city itself to paint a complex, enchanting image. Makarand Waingankar introduces readers not only to the details of the cricketing story but also to the air of the maidans. The book stands testimony to - and pays tribute to - a sporting story that is truly unparalleled.
