Memoirs

No Indian player has captured the imagination of cricket-lovers in the way that Yuvraj Singh has over the past decade. Fiery batsman, deceptive bowler, brilliant fielder, Yuvraj has been in the news for his remarkable skills with bat and ball, his glamorous lifestyle off the field and, more recently, for his courageous battle against a life-threatening illness. In this first ever account of its kind, veteran journalist and cricket administrator Makarand Wagainkar, who has known Yuvraj practically since the day he was born, recalls the rise of the young cricketer, his early years, the tremendous highs and depressing lows in his tumultuous career. With inputs from Yuvraj's parents, his friends, peers and senior players, and written with a rare insight and affection for his subject, this is an eminently readable account of a young cricketer's life, from the earliest days to his triumphant crowning as the World Cup champion in 2011. About the Author Makarand Waingankar is one of India's most widely read cricket columnists, best known for blending meticulous research with his own experience of a life lived on the cricket fields of India. Journalist, columnist, researcher, talent-spotter and administrator, he wears a multitude of hats, each of which fits snugly on his head. He launched the Talent Resource Development Wing (TRDW) on behalf of the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) in 2002 and the TRDW has since been responsible for taking many small-town players to the national stage, including current India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. In fact, seven such players were part of the 2011 World Cup winning team. Makarand has also been CEO of Baroda Cricket Association and Consultant to Karnataka State Cricket Association's academy.
