Brajesh's Review: Going Places - India's Small Town Cricket Heroes

Legends like MSD, Viru & Bhajji or rising stars like Dinda, Abdullah & Jadeja or disasters like Sreesanth & Munaf or hopes like Raina, Praveen & Vinay .... Obviously a very diverse set of cricketers, visible thread of the book was the small-town up-bringing. However Guruprasad also brings a lot of other common themes in this well researched book. Pride of place for the first coach, family support, initial struggle, need to know the system of selectors and giving back to town post success makes this book different.

Rating: 3 / 5
