About the Book

Match-fixing in cricket has plagued the noble game since it’s infancy. A championship match finals in 1810 is fixed, and the bride of the star batsman is murdered over a magical cricket bat that scores runs at will, which the match-fixers are after.

Fast forward 2010. Twenty-twenty cricket, with it’s sheer weight of popularity and wealth, has dominated cricket across the subcontinent and the world. An experimental match between the Amateurs XI and a Professional XI takes place, organized by the billionaire Dawson brothers. The coach gets mysteriously murdered after the first match. Worse, the star batsman, Amay Indulkar, loses his batting form, after scoring a century at Lords, and apparently losing his childhood sweetheart.
