Smg: A Biography of Sunil Manohar Gavaskar

Devendra Prabhudesai (Author)
Synopsis An epitome of discipline, dedication and determination, he is a hero for millions, not only in India but the world over. He has been a mentor and trendsetter for those who are seeking to follow his footsteps on the cricket field and an inspiration for those who seek excellence in other walks of life. The fortitude and self-belief that enabled him to scale every conceivable peak in his chosen profession continues to inspire youngsters. SMG  is a comprehensive account of the remarkable life of the greatest opening batsman in cricketing history.The book takes the readers through SMG’s formative years, and subsequently, his battles for his country. It attempts to analyse the different facets of the man - his impeccable technique, his hunger for runs, his monumental concentration, his ups and downs, and above all, his resilience in crises, on and off the field. From his being declared the 'Best Schoolboy Cricketer' in 1966, to his record-breaking centuries, the book takes a close look at his achievements, many of which were unprecedented in cricketing history. The teenaged prodigy of the 1960s has evolved into a Guru of the game in the new millennium. SMG maps Gavaskar’s life from its middle-class beginnings, and proceeds to give readers an insight into the mindset and methods of a legend.
