Books - Spirit of Cricket: Reflections on Play and Life by Mike Brearley, Hachette India
Ex-cricketer Mike Brearley reflects on the importance of the rules and the spirit of ‘justice’ in the game of cricket in his latest book.

The book explores the balancing act that cricketing laws achieve, and the tough and delicate nature of the job these lawmakers must perform— to meet the demands and aspirations of numerous factions with vested interests in cricket. He analyzes the many controversial aspects, issues and incidents in the annals of the game—from ‘Mankading’ and the ‘Sandpaper’ affair to sledging and racism. The book reveals why understanding the spirit of the game is essential for administrators, groundsmen, umpires, players and spectators alike to fulfill their roles.
