‘Remarkable’! ‘Superb’! Nihar Suthar’s The Corridor of Uncertainty is out now, and the Afghan cricket potboiler has the potential to be huge. That’s the opinion of Martin Chandler, reviewing the book on the well-respected CricketWeb.net site.
“A superb book and one that deserves to be widely read,” Martin believes. “There is absolutely no reason why it would not appeal to every single one of the millions of readers who made The Kite Runner a best seller, as well as the rather more modest forty thousand or so who buy Wisden every April…
“It has the potential to be the biggest selling book about the game of cricket ever written. The most thought provoking book on any subject I have read in years.”
Meanwhile, popular cricket writer Joseph Romanos added on the Stuff website in NZ: “I've read cricket books from WG Grace to Sachin Tendulkar, but nothing has been more inspiring than Suthar's The Corridor of Uncertainty.”
Just as every batsman struggles to hit deliveries in the corridor of uncertainty, the Afghan cricket team faced similar doubts, problems and extreme danger in its quest to mend a war-torn nation.
