Who killed Hansie Cronje and Bob Woolmer? Have players from the national squad been involved in match-fixing? Is suspending IPL teams punishment enough for erring franchise owners? Should betting be made legal in India as advised by the Lodha Committee? From S. Sreesanth to Chris Cairns, Lalit Modi to N. Srinivasan, Hamid Cassim to Tinku Mandi, Shantanu Guha Ray examines the allegations of corruption against players, cricket administrators and bookies alike. He interviews the myriad people who linger in the shadows of players' dressing rooms - the middle men, agents, 'friends' of IPL franchise owners - placing bets on games and enticing cricketers to reveal inside information for money, sex or, worse, fear for their lives. Also under the spotlight are the roles of the police and the government, who have, at best, made patchy efforts to stem the rot. Fixed!: Cash and Corruption in Cricket is an incisive, unflinching look at the underbelly of what once used to be a gentleman's game.

‘It must be my power, the bat speed I generate, and the swing of the bat...’ Mahendra Singh Dhoni is as calm and unruffled a sportsman on the field as he is self-effacing off it. But ‘brute strength’, ‘murderous form’ and ‘a man possessed’ were some of the phrases that came to mind when, on 5 April 2005 in Visakhapatnam, he exploded onto international consciousness by becoming the first regular Indian ’keeper to score a one-day century. With his striking form on the day, his long locks visible beneath his helmet, red tints glinting in the sunlight, ‘Mahi’ Dhoni had transformed from a boy HAILING from an obscure small town to a sports legend with the aura of a rock star. And yet, Dhoni was no child prodigy, no overnight success. When he made his international debut at 23, he was already mature by Indian cricket standards—with five grinding years of domestic cricket behind him. How that legend came to be—and grew from game to game—is told here by noted sportswriter Gulu Ezekiel in his crackling but measured prose. Captain Cool is the story of MS Dhoni, Indian cricket’s poster boy; it is also the heartwarming account of the life of a young man who won India the World Twenty20 in 2007, the 50-over World Cup title in 2011 and the Champions Trophy in

In many ways, Kohli epitomizes the New Age Indian — aggressive, sometimes brash, but also a go-getter with great clarity about what he wants. After making his mark at the junior level, when he led the Under-19 team to victory in the World Cup, Virat Kohli graduated into the senior ranks quite seamlessly and is now considered a pivotal player in the Indian team. He played a significant role in the 2011 World Cup triumph and has since matured into a consistent match-winner in limited overs cricket and a highly reliable batsman in the longer version of the game. His brilliant fielding enhances manifold his value to the team. Rated among the best young players in the world today, Kohli’s filmstar looks and dashing approach on the field make him hugely popular with both fans and brands. Not quite 25, he is sound on tactics, strong on fellow-player management and is already seen as the future captain of India. Ayaz Memon, one of India’s most prolific journalists, brings with him 33 years of experience in sports writing. He started his career covering sports and went on to edit newspapers like Mid-Day, Bombay Times and DNA as well as magazines like Sportsweek. Ayaz was also sports editor for the Times of India and the Independent at various stages. He is currently consulting editor with NewsX. C. Rajshekhar Rao is a sports writer with the international news agency, The Associated Press. He has in the past written for prominent Indian newspapers like The Hindu, The Indian Express and Daily News and Analysis.

The story of a young man who has reaffirmed our faith in Indian cricket. On the football field of a beautiful small town in the Chhota Nagpur region, young schoolboy Mahendra Singh Dhoni was a goalkeeper... From here on, the story of Dhoni has been nothing short of magical. Not only did he become captain of a successful Indian cricket team, he moulded that captaincy to his own image, with his strength, conviction and daring strategies. Everything about MS Dhoni, from his early years to his trajectory towards stardom, from his fearless and indomitable batting skills to his courageous captaincy is here in this biography of one of India’s most recognizable cricketing icons. Not for nothing is he known as Captain Cool, for Dhoni brought home cricket’s most coveted trophies to India, from the World Cup to the inaugural T20 Championship. In the words of Ian Chappell, after India’s World Cup victory, “Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s polished performance as skipper, where he pushed, prodded and cajoled his side into peaking at the right time, has shown he’s not only the best leader in the game, but also one of the finest of the last 30 years.” Ayaz Memon, one of India’s most prolific journalists, brings with him 33 years of experience in sports writing. He started his career covering sports and went on to edit newspapers like Mid-Day, Bombay Times and DNA as well as magazines like Sportsweek. Ayaz was also sports editor for the Times of India and the Independent at various stages. He is currently consulting editor with NewsX.
