Khan celebrates winning the 1992 World Cup at the MelbourneCricket Ground Related News Book: Wounded Tiger: A History of Cricket in Pakistan Author: Peter Oborne Publisher: Simon & Schuster Pages: 624 Price: Rs 699 By Sharda Ugra In an unintentional tribute to our well-known rivalry Wounded Tiger: A History of Cricket in Pakistan opens with a neat swipe at assumptions about Pakistani cricket from across the border In his preface writer Peter Oborne calls Ramachandra Guha’s A Corner of A Foreign Field “one of the best cricket books ever written” but swiftly corrects a statement or two it made about Pakistani cricket In the next sentence Oborne dismisses former Indian Cabinet minister and career-diplomat Shashi Tharoor’s essay about Pakistani cricket as being “littered with errors of fact and interpretation” Ooh good contest this Not really Those were not early inroads into another skirmish but an example of how Pakistani cricket is largely caricatured or stereotyped by the outside world It’s only fair to start with the neighbours who dominate the discourse about South Asian cricket Pakistani cricket’s constant whirlabout in the 24/7 information age has turned its singular and unique past into a mere background blur That said a comprehensive history of Pakistan cricket which Wounded Tiger intends to be cannot be easy to handle Despite its many handy analogies with the state of the nation itself Pakistani cricket has always been the game’s theory-buster When Pakistan was created it had no formalised first-class structures and only two major cricketing centres Yet the team won its first Test in England just two years after acquiring Test status on its first tour in 1954 New Zealand took 53 years South Africa 46 India 39 the West Indies 22 and Sri Lanka 16 The victory at the Oval came in Pakistan’s fourth Test in England (quite different from New Zealand’s 29th India’s 22nd South Africa’s 19th and West Indies’s 11th) No major cricketing nation has produced not one but two successful captains who rose to become central figures in their country’s political landscape For Abdul Hafeez Kardar its first captain board chief government minister cricket was always a symbol and an engine of a “common national consciousness” Imran Khan’s second innings as opposition politician and philanthropist remains a transformative life story in itself Pakistan has not played a home Test for the past five years Its players have been arrested and spent time in British jail over spot-fixing It has been pushed away from the magnetic field created by Indian cricket’s cash registers Its administration is constantly tripping over itself in litigation Yet the team has always been competitive It can lose to Zimbabwe and a month later beat South Africa Pakistani cricket oscillates to use an Oborne-ism between “heroism and scandal” It is all of this that Wounded Tiger attempts to make coherent A weighty tome — 500 pages — the book is broken into four parts Its biggest gifts lie in the stories packed into the first two sections of the book called the Age of Kardar and the Age of Khan which make up almost three-quarters of the entire account It contains layer upon layer of stories; the British soldiers taking the game to what became Pakistan as the merchants introduced the game to India The seeds of Fazal Mahmood’s ambition Kardar’s insane training schedules the hypocrisy dripping from the English response to its players abducting an umpire in 1955 Familiar Indian names pop up early in the story: Lala Amarnath’s adoption by a Muslim family in Lahore which is still contested CK Nayudu saving Fazal Mahmood from a lynch mob with a cricket bat in 1947 which is not There are extraordinary photographs from personal collections of the most famous cricketing families Oborne takes the Western press to task for “orientalising” the cricket smarts of Javed Miandad and the wizardry of Abdul Qadir and turning them into eastern skullduggery Yet it is as if having packed itself with many themes and many strands alongside a turbulent national story the narrative finds itself exhausted by the time it heads into the 21st century The sections called the Age of Expansion and the Age of Isolation are far less personalised Statements are grandly swept — “this form of cricket corruption has been a manifestation of the rise of big money live cricket on TV and the collapse of moral standards” When the Pakistan players were denied IPL contracts the situation “provided an economic incentive for match-fixing” The moving descriptions of his meetings with old Pakistani cricketers rise above his account of the current generations Those are mostly taken from chunks of current cricketers’ autobiographies Current Test captain Misbah ul-Haq is called a “brave and remarkable man” and “worthy successor to the great former captains Kardar and Imran” but offered only a few simplistic brushstrokes: Pashtun Niazi management degree and a quote about the problems of never playing at home A quibble must be made While Wounded Tiger is painstakingly researched with an avalanche of acknowledgements and a formidable bibliography the endnotes from Chapter 27 suddenly cease So there is no way of knowing more about the secret video in which bookmaker Mazhar Majeed says that Ajmal is “too religious” to get involved in spot-fixing Or the claim by Ijaz Butt that Hafeez and coach Dav Whatmore had “ganged up to isolate Misbah” from the rest of the team Yet that must be minor Towards the end there arrives an image captured in a cameo that fixes itself into the memory The writer goes to meet Pakistan’s batting giant Hanif Mohammed and finds that his son Shoaib and grandson Shezar have also dropped in Shezar a first-class cricketer himself is wearing a T-shirt that has the words ‘Let’s Build a Better Pakistan’ on it It is the slogan of Imran’s political party Cricket in Pakistan has always been tied in with nation and nation-building it is why it travels through the bylanes of politics and government Wounded Tiger is the first major account of the history of Pakistan cricket which has been dealt with largely by high-volume mass media coverage to reach Western audiences in decades By the end of the year a second comprehensive history of Pakistani cricket is to be released written by Osman Samiuddin an outstanding journalist and cricket writer from the country itself Peter Oborne will understand This is Pakistani cricket there is always a twist to its tale The writer is Senior Editor at ESPNCricinfo For all the latest Lifestyle News
