Product Description

How does a batsman concentrate? Just how is a player 'in form' or 'out of form'? Are preparations for Tests, ODIs and T20s really very different? Why do certain teams 'crumble badly under pressure' while others 'choke'? And, really, what makes for pressure?



This insightful book by former international cricketer Aakash Chopra takes you inside the making and unmaking of cricketers: how they think, how they are likely to react to various match situations, and above all, why they react the way they do. From reading the bowler to gauging the batsman, from playing the bouncer to elding at short-leg, from the technical aspects of the game to the psychological, from the tangible to the abstract, The Insider shuts out the noise and hysteria to allow fans a rare peek into the cricketing brain. This compelling volume is a milestone in writing on cricket.
