A fascinating, absorbing, re?creation of a fascinating, absorbing, tournament, this is a book for cricket fans of all ages and all nationalities’—Ramachandra Guha

Was 2011 the best World Cup of all time? You wouldn’t find too many arguing against it. Claims that the tournament served to revive the one-day international format aren’t far off the mark. It had close, engaging matches, a reasonable balance between bat and ball (and this in a World Cup that was written off as a series of run-fests in the offing before it began), and kept a subcontinent in thrall for most of its duration. The favourites weren’t overwhelmingly favoured, unlike in previous years, and though they did make it to the title, they didn’t coast to it. The tournament also provided the cherry on the career cake of possibly the best-loved cricketer of all time. This book attempts to recapture the magic of the tenth edition of cricket’s premier event.
