Doosra: A Tale of Cricket, Crime and Controversy (Paperback)
I have seen God play cricket and his name is Tarun Krishnan. Ÿ?? Almost at the summit of world cricket, the only thing Tarun Krishnan lacks is a World Cup win. He is the ideal husband, doting father, cricket superstar, role model and Mr. Clean. Until now. The 2011 World Cup is on. Hot favorites India are playing their penultimate group match. Amidst this, Tarun's world comes crumbling down with allegations of assault, numerous affairs and match fixing. He becomes a villain in the eyes of his billion and counting fans. Only three people can help him star journalist Aditi, whiz kid Sunny and ex bookie Godse. Tarun needs redemption, a platform to prove his innocence and regain the faith of a nation. The only way to do this is to gain strength from his remaining supporters and play the game he loves. This time, however, the rules will be different. He will be the one setting them.
