For close to 80 years the world has revered Donald Bradman as the greatest batsman ever while Sachin Tendulkar has been accepted merely as the greatest contemporary batsman. In this first-of-its-kind forensic study, find out why Sachin, not Bradman, is the greatest batsman of all time. This book is unlike any other book on cricket. It is not a biography of Sachin... or Bradman. It is an unprecedented attempt to set the record straight. It is not a compilation of interviews or cricket anecdotes. It is a tribute to Sachin. It corrects the grave injustice done to him by those who maintain that the crown belongs to Bradman. After all, Bradman is the final frontier. You are invited to take a closer look. See Sachin in an entirely new light - one that encourages historians, fans and critics to weigh afresh his place in cricket history. The author says: 'Many of the statistics I present are new. I hope I am also offering a new way of looking at their achievements, a more persistently honest way of looking at them. This book is not about Sachin being the greatest batsman in 1998 or the greatest batsman in 2010. It is about him as the greatest batsman in cricket history. So you will need to take your eyes off the TV screen playing last year's ODI or replaying last year's Test, to appreciate the arguments here.' For any fan of Sachin - for that matter, any fan of cricket - this book is a MUST READ. About the author: As far back as 2003, Rudolph Lambert Fernandez challenged the status quo - Bradman's undisputed rank as the greatest batsman in cricket history - by arguing that Sachin was in fact far greater. Ten years on, his book invites readers to a detailed comparison - the first of its kind. Rudolph's writing on Sachin Tendulkar has appeared in The Hindu,, The Asian Age, The Bengal Post, (an India-based cricket website) and (an India-based sports website). Rudolph's writing on cricket has appeared in The Statesman, (a US-based cricket website), (a UK-based cricket website), (a UK-based cricket website) and (an India-based cricket website). Rudolph invites readers to look beyond the mere obvious in cricket, especially in recording and rewarding batting greatness.

Published in 2003, 'Bradman Revisited' sold out as the first analysis of his batting technique to be supported by science. Further research has necessitated this update. We conclude Bradman's boyhood game with golf ball and stump, which evolved naturally into his 'Continuous Rotary Batting Process', was the foundation to his success.

In 1932, England’s cricket team, led by the haughty Douglas Jardine, had the fastest bowler in the world: Harold Larwood. Australia boasted the most prolific batsman the game had ever seen: the young Don Bradman. He had to be stopped. The leg-side bouncer onslaught inflicted by Larwood and Bill Voce, with a ring of fieldsmen waiting for catches, caused an outrage that reverberated to the back of the stands and into the highest levels of government. Bodyline, as this infamous technique came to be known, was repugnant to the majority of cricket-lovers. It was also potentially lethal – one bowl fracturing the skull of Australian wicketkeeper Bert Oldfield – and the technique was outlawed in 1934. After the death of Don Bradman in 2001, one of the most controversial events in cricketing history – the Bodyline technique - finally slid out of living memory. Over seventy years on, the 1932-33 Ashes series remains the most notorious in the history of Test cricket between Australia and England. David Frith’s gripping narrative has been acclaimed as the definitive book on the whole saga: superbly researched and replete with anecdotes, Bodyline Autopsy is a masterly anatomy of one of the most remarkable sporting scandals.

In Gideon Haigh's latest book, one of cricket's finest writers turns his subject Inside Out, examining those aspects of cricket that distinguish it from other games, from the centenary of Sir Donald Bradman and the cult of the baggy green cap to the threat and promise of the Twenty20 revolution. This is cricket not only as it is played, but as it is seen, run, commercialised, codified, promoted, politicised and also written about by others, with a detailed introduction to the distinguished literary traditions of which Gideon Haigh now forms part.
