After the immense success of Sachin Tendulkar’s autobiography Playing It My Way, there has been a flood of announcements and five more Indian cricketers have announced that they will also launch their autobiographies very soon. The Cricket Lounge brings you an exclusive peek into these upcoming autobiographies.
PLAYING IT DHONI’S WAY
This book will be authored by Suresh Raina and it will be about Suresh Raina’s journey from an inconsistent batsman to one of the most attacking batsmen in the world. In this book, Suresh Raina will write about his “Guru-Chela” relationship with MS Dhoni and how he focused on impressing MS Dhoni in the first 4 years of the Indian Premier League. Raina will write extensively about his struggle to impress Dhoni and how it feels to be his “main man” now. Sources tell us that Raina will also talk about his nephew who made fun of the Pakistan cricket team on Twitter.
ABUSING IT MY WAY
This book will be authored by India’s star batsman and one of the best batsmen in the world, Virat Kohli. In his autobiography, Virat will write about his days of playing street cricket in Delhi, from where he mastered all his BCs and MCs. Sources tell us that Virat has requested India’s hip-hop sensation Honey Singh to write the foreword of his book. This book has generated a lot of buzz and all his fans are very excited to learn different forms of BCs and MCs from the master himself.
PLAYING IT KEEPER’S WAY
This book will be authored by India’s out of favor batsman Gautam Gambhir. These days, Gambhir has no idea where is off-stump is which is why he is struggling to make a comeback to the Indian team. In this book, Gambhir will give a detailed account of misery outside the off stump and how he managed to play infinite number of balls straight into the hands of the wicketkeeper.
THROWING IT MY WAY
This book will be authored by India’s ace off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin. This book promises to be very interesting because Ashwin has hinted towards leaking the secret behind BCCI’s bullying and blatant use of power in preventing him from coming under ICC’s radar, when all other chuckers were getting banned. Sources tell us that N Srinivasan warned Ashwin about this book and told Ashwin to control his enthusiasm as he can’t afford another “enthusiast” in Indian cricket.
NEVER PLAYED IT MY WAY
This book will be authored by none other than the former Indian captain Rahul Dravid. Throughout his career, Dravid always kept team’s interest ahead of his own. Rahul has been a great ambassador of the game and a role model for all the young cricketers across the world. Despite Dravid being one of the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket, he always played under the shadow of Sachin Tendulkar and never complained. From wicketkeeping to opening, Dravid did almost everything to contribute his best to Indian cricket. Those who followed Dravid’s career will agree that his way was never “my way” it was always “team’s way”.
