Summary

This is a riveting read for a cricket lover, especially an India fan. A remarkable, eye-witness history of the Cricket World Cup from an Indian perspective the book details the little-known story of India's turning point in one-day cricket in Guyana, when Kapil Dev's team in March 1983 beat the previously unassailable West Indies in their backyard. It also reminds readers of the tremor that was felt in the cricketing world when India repeated the success at Manchester in the World Cup 10 weeks later, before defeating the same side in the final two weeks later. It relives India's forgotten triumph in the 1985 World Championship and the rekindling of hope when Sourav Ganguly's team finished as runners-up in the 2003 World Cup. The book further depicts how MS Dhoni planned victory, together with Sachin Tendulkar inspiring Yuvraj Singh to perform at his best, in the 2011 tournament. 
 
The book is embellished by illuminating reports and scores on each India match and every semi-final and final in the World Cup since its inception. Finally, it discusses India's prospects in the 2019 World Cup.

    The awareness game

    Tennis is awareness. This study of technical, strategical, tactical, physical and mental awareness, as
    well as that of a person’s own personality, is the common theme of each chapter of this book and in every approach I take to coaching.
    Tennis exposes strengths and weaknesses. It is an equalizer, putting everyone on equal footing. On the court, there is no one you can ask for help.
    There is only you, your abilities and your experience in an unpredictable situation, where the only certainty is the awareness forged by experience.
    I took my inspiration from the Spanish Method of Luis Bruguera for who needs certainties and solid points, to the development of stances and podalic proprioceptivity of S. Sosa and A. Musulin, fundamental for a solid technique. Visual training analysis by postural and behavioral optometrist is
    the starting point to search motorial awareness. Chapters about psychomotor development analyze motor literacy building in which you can grasp that you can’t omit any letter. Criticalities in losses of balance accustom to adapt yourself to any situation E. Meyer affirms. American methodology by G. Jaramillo suggests the monothematic approach to automate learning.
    My work is also founded on my studies in Sport Science, following in-depth study and then, more importantly, on testing – first on myself and then on thousands of athletes that have truly brought “The game of awareness” to life.
