ESPN Cricinfo Mahi: The Story of India's Most Successful Captain charts the dynamic rise of one of India's most talented and charismatic cricketers and captains. From playing tennis-ball cricket in Ranchi and Kharagpur to his patented helicopter shot, Dhoni has come a long way with his grit and determination.

4 Sachin Tendulkar-A Definitive Biography

Vaibhav Purandare; Foreword By Ramachandra Guha

Roli Books, New Delhi, India, 2011, 8174363602 / 9788174363602, Fourth Revised Edition, Paperback, New, 8.5 x 5.5 Inches 
This is not a scorebook, nor is it an accumulation of facts or the extension of a globally recognised brand. This is the first in-depth and comprehensive biography of Sachin Tendulkar, and it puts Sachin the cricketer and the human being in perspective. Tendulkar’s story is told here grippingly, with a wealth of rare, unpublished anecdotes that throw fresh light on a remarkable career. The book probes the psychological birth and growth of the world’s leading batsman, examines the historical forces that shaped his personal and cricketing character, analyses his cricket planning and actions and evaluates the history the man himself has created, whether by making his Test debut at 16 or by breaking records with a stunning regularity. It just as carefully chronicles and discusses his disappointments, failures and the controversies that have cropped up around his name, and provides an insight into Tendulkar the man, who has for so long been kept from public view. Above all, the book places Tendulkar in the context of the international cricket tradition and determines his exact place in world cricket history. Capacious and yet crisp, Sachin Tendulkar: A Definitive Biography is Tendulkar in totality. Printed Pages: 426 with 8 coloured plates. 010481

5 Sport in South Asian Society: Past and Present

Boria Majumdar and J.A. Mangan (ed.)

Routledge, London, UK, 0415359538 / 9780415359535, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
This book explores the role of sport within the context of South Asian Society. Academics have largely overlooked this fascinating discussion and this collection of essays seeks to remedy this oversight. It reveals that sport can not only be used in many instances as a barometer of the political dynamics of society and a reflection of South Asian culture, it has also influenced these structures.For example, in many instances traditional notions of class divides and gender roles are challenged and subverted in sport, making its role and contribution to the fabric of South Asian society extremely valuable. Furthermore, this book should provide the scope to draw together historians and other scholars to examine methodological issues as well as particular case studies and narratives examining different comprehensions of 'sport'. This book is a special issue of the journal 'the International Journal of the History of Sport'.
