Pundits from Pakistan

On tour with India, 2003-2004

Rahul Bhattacharya

'In early 2004, the Indian cricket team set out for Pakistan . . . ' Pundits describes the subsequent tour, detailing the matches, the moods, the games and the players. More than merely that, though, it is also a book about the first major sporting encounter between India and Pakistan in fifteen years -- a period in which the two countries had fought one war and come close to another. What emerges is a fascinating contemporary account of a beautiful game in its most crucial setting, captured through the eyes of a young Indian discovering Pakistan.
