A Million Broken Windows: The Magic and Mystique of Bombay Cricket
One-third of all of India's international runs have been scored by batsmen who came through the ranks of Bombay cricket. Bombay has won the Ranji Trophy forty times, fifteen of them in a row. Bombay batsmen have scored 461 centuries and fifty-eight double hundreds in the tournament. A Million Broken Windows is the story of how the city of Bombay, almost the birthplace of Indian cricket, has consistently dominated the game of an entire country. It illuminates the various facets of a cricketing culture that is infused with the spirit of the city of Bombay. Replete with anecdotes and analyses, the book discusses various leagues, tournaments, players, the fans and the city to paint a complex picture of the game and of Bombay itself. Makarand Waingankar introduces readers not only to the details of the cricketing story but also to the air of the maidans. The book bears testimony to, and pays tribute to, a sporting story that is truly unparalleled.
