An interesting premise for a book The final test of Sachin Tendulkar captured as an event rather than a mere cricketing contest but Dilip s erudition fails to convert this promising idea into a great book Over reliance on Cricinfo s comments and bland descriptions of action on the field pull the book down.Definitely readable if one ignores the repetitive passages The ground covered seems fit for a long essay rather than a full fledged book. Though the premise is interesting, it gets banal most of the times.The good thing is it s not written from a fan boy s perspective.
