As a Director, Sushanta not only fills the traditional Managing role, he also serves as Project Executive, with overall responsibility for resource management and planning. Very well written. Thank you Sushanta. Parvin Chaudhuri, Delhi e-mail: pc gmail. This publication is very different from a modern tour book with the author concentrating almost entirely on the cricket and very little reporting on peripheral incidents.
No other author I have read seems to have such a comprehensive understanding of the finer points of the game. His evaluation and dissecting of each innings and pinpointing of strategies employed make for fascinating reading. Sandeep Kamboj, Nainital e-mail: skamboj gmail. Its an excellent short Book and some discourses on the history of the game played by Sachin Tendulkar.
I loved it!! I just loved the poem on Sachin This is a fine Book about the Master Blaster. My son was thrilled to read it. It is an amazing effort to be so cognisant in ability to capture the writing styles,but Sushanta has succeeded magnificently.
