#DailyBookQuote : 15th November 2013
This book is for the fan and the analyst, by two writers who consider themselves fans and analysts in equal measure. It follows the career of Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar, demi-god and cricketer. His rise, his peak, his dark phase, and his resurrection. It asks the tough questions asked of him, through the lens of statistics. Numbers are not everything, but once one has framed and understood the context, they are certainly stronger than opinions. The authors seek to compare him with his peers in both major forms of the game and present the data so that the reader can independently draw conclusions. And if you still believe Sachin isn’t god’s gift to the world of cricket, well, god help you.
