Sphere of Influence by Gideon Haigh
In the last three years, cricket has changed more completely than in the preceding three decades, revolutionised by a racy new format, Twenty20, and a glamorous new competition, the Indian Premier League. How did India come to run world cricket, and privately-owned clubs owned by billionaires and Bollywood stars shove international competition aside? How did money unite players and divide administrators, amid allegations of massive corruption? Gideon Haigh has followed cricket's biggest story since Kerry Packer from the beginning. This collection of his despatches brings the struggle for cricket's soul into sharp and disturbing focus.
