Abstract/Summary John Buchanan, the record-breaking former coach of the Australian Cricket Team and coach of the Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL, gives an insider’s account of the development and launch of the tournament that may forever change the face of international cricket. The rise of Twenty20 always promised change, and Buchanan traces the shift from the One Day International (ODI) format through to the Twenty20 World Cup and announcement of the Indian Premier League (IPL). What forces were at work and why was there loss of support for the ODI format and country versus country cricket? Buchanan also charts the rise and rise of the Indian power brokers and how they have come to be in such a dominant position. In this entertaining and insightful book, Buchanan chronicles the first IPL tournament, from the dramatic auction to the series itself, giving us an invaluable behind-the-scenes view of this groundbreaking event.
