However, fate intervenes in their idyllic life. On 18th April 1986, Javed Miandad hits Chetan Sharma for a six in Sharjah and leaves their cricket viewing life in tatters. The after-effects of this fateful event, continue to haunt them for many years.
Their problems don’t end there.
Sat fails to graduate from school level cricket to state level cricket. He is heartbroken by the loss of his dreams and faces a mini identity crisis.
How do the boys solve their problems?
Will the boys ever recover from that Javed Miandad incident?
Will Sat get his mojo back?
Come, join the heartwarming ride and find out the answers, as Sat takes you through his nostalgic memories of the sport and narrates his coming of age story, which is deeply influenced by the sport!
Life in the Sunshine has really made its way into the book world by choosing the most contemporary fad of Indians, YES! The game Cricket!
This book has an undetectable flow taking you down the memory lane.
The story of three buddies who actually lived the game of cricket rather than just loved playing, actually makes you nostalgic.
I just could not keep myself from smiling as the pages went on turning.
Just that, the title actually did not justify what i read. It is not much of an autobiography. It has stories with some flawed anecdotes from real world cricket, but which have the charm enough to make you time travel back to your childhood days!
Overall, i am rejuvenated and am going out to play cricket!
