Publisher: ScholasticISBN: 9789351031697. Book Summary: What motivates a youngster to take up cricket? Is it fame and recognition, pride at representing a state and then India, if the luck holds up? To play in the IPL and make money? How different is a career in cricket from one in, say, the corporate world? How different are the youngsters who go out to play in white or fluorescent yellow uniforms from the ones that work in more mainstream jobs? Cricket Changed My Life tells the stories of cricketers who have played for the Indian team and those that couldn’t, players who have achieved success only at the IPL or only in first-class cricket, men who walked the wrong path and foreigners that earn their living in rupees. These are the stories of some of the men that make up what Indian cricket, beyond the big headlines, really is.
