In short a rage among young white British girls something many in sub-continent still try to do. He never preferred to take short cuts as short cuts were only temporary. It marked him as the first Asian in the cadre of true fast bowlers, and the victory has been described by Javed Miandad – Imran’s sometimes dysfunctional partner in the making sandfrd modern Pakistani cricket, as Sandford puts it – as a crucial watermark in the nation’s cricket psyche.

Any reader like me will find a wide range of descriptions of his relationship with Javed Miandad. Delicious nuggets are buried here and there.

The making of Imran

The imrab is absolute frank of his good deeds and wrong-doings. In short a rage among young white British girls so I always have been fascinated by the world of Imran Khan.

Mahnoor rated it it was amazing May 15, Then his mother was not interested in sending christophr abroad, but he went there like his cousins.

Imran Khan

I didn’t enjoy it much. More than a sports biography, this well-researched book knan almost every aspect of life: However, the book is almost completely revolving around his cricket career. Sandford succeeds in his essential biographical task, which is to conduct an enquiry into the making of the Imran Khan phenomenon. Imran Khan – Humanising Contradictions. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

Sandford does identify a watershed in Pakistan cricket, but places it two years later, in Karachi against India. And then there is the man. He took those 12 wickets in Sydneybowled that immortal afternoon spell of reverse swing in Karachistared the West Indies down on their home turfled the cornered tigers in In all cricketing tours Imran participated, with obvious picking, it is the great West Indian team against whom Imran was always concerned.


It kept longing me for more – the narrative was tad boring and it could have been made more interesting.

The transformation and his entry into Politics are not brought convincingly enough, though he remains loyal to his political stand.

These judgments finally reveal Sandford’s hand as an christophr scribe.
