About the Book
The ban of IPL teams Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals in July 2015 has exposed the underbelly of national cricket. It all began with the indictment of Meiyappan and Kundra, and before that the arrest of fast bowler S. Sreesanth accused of spot-fixing. Long before, corruption in international cricket had reared its ugly head with the mysterious deaths of South African cricket captain Hansie Cronje and Pakistani coach Bob Woolmer. Veteran journalist Shantanu Guha Ray shows how deeply entwined the nexus of bookies and punters is with those in the corridors of power and the cracks that are now threatening to swallow the 'gentleman's game'.
