Some love Sourav Ganguly, others love to hate him, but no one can simply ignore him. Sourav Ganguly: The Maharaja Of Cricket is about the man, the leader and the motivator. With a bat in his hands, he is still worth a wager. This book is a tribute to the grit, courage and dedication of one man who taught Indian cricketers to dream. He is the man who can be credited with building Team India, brick by brick. The story of Sourav Ganguly is essentially that of a bright young lad’s metamorphosis into a leader in a battlefield called cricket. It is the kind of stuff that fairy tales are made of.
