In eye on cricket, Samir Chopra, a professor of philosophy and a long - time blogger at ESPN cricinfo, offers us a deeply personal take on a game that has entranced him his entire life in the several lands he has called home. He reflects on a childhood centred on cricket, the many obsessions of fandom, the intersection of the personal and the political, expatriate experiences of cricket, historical regrets and remembrances and cricket writing and media. Nostalgic, passionate and meditative, eye on cricket is steeped in cricket history and its cultural significance and reminds the most devoted spectators of the game that they are not alone. Every emotion they've experienced is a shared one - for the empire's most famous export, this gentlemanly game of bat and ball, has slowly built the most closely bonded brotherhood in the world.
