This week we have the incredible privilege of speaking to Dr. Ramachandra Guha, cricket writer and historian. We discuss India’s recent test series win in Australia and where it ranks amongst the greatest Indian wins, Dr. Guha’s time in the CoA as a BCCI administrator and his latest book – The Commonwealth of Cricket. Dr Guha responds to questions from listeners and we announce details of how to win a copy of the book courtesy Harper Collins (hint: share the link to this podcast, check the subtitle of the book and send us your answer to the question asked by Ashwin on the podcast).
