Spheres Of Influence: Writings on cricket and its discontents

Gideon Haigh

This insightful collection brings the struggle to save cricket’s soul into sharp and disturbing focus. 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? How did clubs owned by billionaires and Bollywood stars begin to 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’s ‘World Series’ from the beginning- Sphere of Influence is the result. This insightful collection brings the struggle to save cricket’s soul into sharp and disturbing focus.
