Winning Games & Hearts is a candid, impromptu and a very simple take on a game that binds India and Pakistan, from the eyes of a commoner. In addition to the side-lights that were a huge part of the Indo-Pak series 2004 (Samsung Cup) the author recreates a bit of the cricketing magic that some got to taste first-hand. The riveting moments in the Press box at the stadium, the overheard comments, the camaraderie and the edge of competition. An episode in the history of two nations that cannot be relegated to a moment in time. The author, Indranil Basu, celebrates India's historic win with this book.
