Overview

Cricket Cauldron by Shaharyar M. Khan & Ali Khan. What’s bred in the marrow comes out in the batting... Pakistan is a country beset with political instabilities, economic problems, ethnic conflicts, religious fervour and crises of identity. It is also a country in which the game of cricket has become a nationwide obsession. Shaharyar M. Khan and Ali Khan describe how cricket defines Pakistanis’ national identity and boosts morale even as the country struggles to contain internal political conflict; they show how the game shapes the political, social and cultural landscape of Pakistan and its fractured relations with India. It examines controversies such as the 2006 Oval Test against England, where the Pakistani team was accused of ball tampering; the allegations of spot-fixing against three Pakistani cricketers ñ Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir; the mysterious death of the Pakistani coach and his good friend Bob Woolmer; instances of overt religiosity in the Pakistani team under the captaincy of Inzamam-ul-Haq; and indiscipline and factionalism among players. The authors illuminate Pakistan for readers by offering an unusual and highly original perspective ñ that in understanding the state of cricket in Pakistan, we can gain a deeper understanding of the state of Pakistan itself. Collaboration with HarperCollins.
