About the Book

A racy, hilarious saga of a mad,
mad Indian cricket fan

If cricket could be equated to religion, Tijinder Tuteha or Titu would automatically qualify as Devotee Number One! Period. Cricket is the elixir for him.

Over the years, Titu gets addicted to T20-the new, band-band format of cricket. His favourite team is Punjab Pulverizers and his god is Khoobraj Singh, the PP's ace batsman. By a stroke of luck, Titu wins a free couple-entry pass to the match of BPL- the Bhartiya Premier League- the T2- cricket tournament on the face of this earth. And the cherry on the cake is that PP are going to be playing their nemesis, HH - the Haryana Hounds.

It turns out to be quite a humdinger of a match-sending Titu's heart-rate and blood pressure soaring with each passing minute. He turns very pale and begins to perspire copiously. But s engrossed is he in the match that he doesn't feel the gnawing pain creeping up his chest, until suddenly, he collapses in his seat and his heart stops beating. Horrified, Tilottama, his wife, lets out a scream of despair which of course gets lost in the excited, unrelenting uproar all around them.

What happens then? Does cricket manage to, quite literally, kill its biggest fan? Or does cricket, with one, final, life-saving stroke of its magical bat, manage to redeem the life of its biggest patron ever?

Who wins this match of the life and death? Find out in this page turner.
