Wajahat S. Khan

In a candid account, the former captain of Pakistan’s national cricket team tells the story of his life while setting straight some incorrect facts, noting that he was 19 — not 16 — years old when he batted a historic 100 runs off 37 balls. He writes about being beaten by his father for “obsessing” about cricket and dropping out of private school. From there, it’s a trip through the next 20 years as an international star, controversies both on and off the pitch and a player’s thoughts on the biggest game the world plays: politics.
