K. L. Mohana Varma con Cricket-Indo : The Story of an Indo-Pak One-Day Cricket Turf War (English Edition)
Cricket is considered a religion in the Indian sub-continent. The ambition of every mother in India is to make her son a national player, but only one in 1 billion succeeds.

The sporting “war on turf” between India and Pakistan plays out on television screens, glorifying national pride, even as the age-old legends and history of the countries are symbolized in the brutality and sportsmanship of the game.
