The funny side of the gentlemans gamecaptured by a master cartoonist
In India cricket is more than a game; it is a national obsession. And with a World Cup always around the corner, there is no better way to prepare for the excitement of seeing the men in blue in action than with renowned cartoonist Sudhir Dars creations. Dar shows in his inimitable style how cricket can change flight schedules, disrupt board meetings, encourage spirituality, promote the sale of effigies, and cause general disharmony in the household. He explains what actually goes on in a huddle; what telescopic lenses on the boundary line are really used for; why duck is not a preferred item on the menu during the World Cup; why barbers across the nation are cursing Dhoni; and how a group of countries collectively known as the West Indies is likely to destabilize India. He also reveals the cheerleading mantra that might work when India plays Australia: May the better side lose.
For several decades, Sudhir Dar has tickled our funny bone with his wit. The Mad, Mad World of Cricket contains his best and funniest work on cricket.
