In this book, Neeraj Kumar, one of India’s most well-respected and accomplished police officers – a former BCCI anti-corruption chief – takes us inside the seamy world of corruption in cricket. What one encounters is an ungentlemanly game of cops and robbers: swindlers who cheat young players while the BCCI looks the other way, sham matches held just for the sake of betting and top administrators who care more for commerce than the integrity of the sport. This is an eye-opening and shocking insider’s account of the rot within Indian cricket.
Neeraj Kumar, a distinguished police officer, joined the IPS in 1976 and retired as the Commissioner of Police, Delhi in 2013.During his eventful career, nine years of which were in the CBI,he conducted several investigations of international dimensions involving terrorism, organized crime, economic offences and corruption. He represented India at the deliberations for the UN Convention Against Transnational Organised Crime and the UN International Convention Against the Taking of Hostages. A Cop in Cricket is his third book after bestsellers Dial D for Don and Khaki Files. Seasons 1 and 2 of Netflix’s Delhi Crime are based on stories from his second book.
