Some love Sourav Ganguly, others love to hate him, but no one can simply ignore him. Sourav Ganguly: The Maharaja Of Cricket is about the man, the leader and the motivator. With a bat in his hands, he is still worth a wager. This book is a tribute to the grit, courage and dedication of one man who taught Indian cricketers to dream. He is the man who can be credited with building Team India, brick by brick. The story of Sourav Ganguly is essentially that of a bright young lad’s metamorphosis into a leader in a battlefield called cricket. It is the kind of stuff that fairy tales are made of.

Debasish Datta's passion for cricket can only be compared to Sunil Gavaskar's hunger for runs. He met Gavaskar for the first time in 1978 and this unique partnership continues to flower. It is said that when he is unwell, the best medicine you can give to Debasish is a story to chase. It is known to work like magic. Vastly experienced, he has criss-crossed the globe covering cricket from Wellington to Jamaica, Lahore to London and from Mumbai to Melbourne. The chief cricket writer of Aajkaal and the author of several books, Debasish has also aired his views on the BBC, Sky TV, NDTV, CNN-IBN and 24 Ghanta.
