CRICKET: A Bridge of Peace
CRICKET: A Bridge of Peace
Description
From the Jacket:

South Asia is home to one of the fiercest rivalries in international sport - cricket between India and Pakistan. No other derby has the same passionate following, the constant intermingling of sport and politics, or serves as the ultimate expression of national identity as an India-Pakistan cricket match.

In this volume, Shaharyar Khan, present chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board and an avowed cricket diplomat, offers glimpses of the power of the game to unite divided societies. Moving away from the often-used adage of India-Pakistan cricket as 'war minus the shooting', the book is replete with illustrations when momentous political decisions followed cricket tours. An instance is the standing ovation the victorious Pakistan Team received at Chennai in 1999 that reflected public attitudes to India-Pakistan relations and contributed to the Lahore Declaration.

The volume gives the reader a unique view of Pakistan cricket and how players as ambassadors carry the burden of national responsibility, just as in India. Capturing exciting portraits of some of the greatest players of today and the vigour of international sporting action, the volume claims that India-Pakistan relations will benefit from the glorious traditions of cricket. It affirms that subsequent generations will look back at cricket encounters with the knowledge that when they played, peace won. This volume will be of interest to all cricket lovers and a broad lay audience in addition to scholars and specialists.

About the Author:

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
