7 Cricketers and their Favourite Books!

Apparently, George Bernard Shaw -- contrary to rumours he didn’t grandfather Hashim Amla, it’s their common beard that triggered the speculation –- once said his favourite book was his cheque book.

Many suspect the cricketers are no better.

But recently the ICC listed favourite books of some of the cricketers we never suspected of being anything beyond a game-reader.

Well, Dravid probably reads Duckworth-Lewis method at leisure but others?

Doosra compiles a list of possible favourite books of some of our favourite players.

1. Harbhajan Singh: Geetanjali by Tagore. He bought the book under impression that it’s a biography of his actress-friend Geeta Basra.

2. Mohd Asif: Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh.

3. Rahul Dravid: Catch 22 by Joseph Heller. He is looking for tips how to catch all 22 opponents batsmen in a Test.

4. Ramesh Powar: Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson.

5. Kamran Akmal: Jaws by Peter Benchley.

6. Salman Butt: The Trial by Kafka

7. Lalit Modi: A Passage to India by E M Forster. Modi is searching for one.

be able to fix this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
Appreciate it!

I tend not to write many comments, but i did some searching and wound up here "7 Cricketers and their Favourite Books!".
And I actually do have a couple of questions
for you if you usually do not mind. Could it be just me or does it give the
impression like a few of the remarks appear as if they are left by brain dead folks?
:-P And, if you are writing at additional online
sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have
to post. Could you make a list of all of your
communal pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
