Lateral Thinking leads to the Aussie Cricket Squad they needed!
The 17th Man continues his journey to greatness in his parallel universe of cricket chaos.

David Beckham? Apparently, they all want to play for Australia.

Australian Cricket Tours of India always start with winning expectations that are ever so slowly deflated by stifling days watching dusty pies belted over the boundary ropes and a curry smorgasbord that runs through you like the Ganges. Mental disintegration under pressure is nothing new. Add the spice of HomeWorkGate, persecution of the Mohali 4, debilitating on-field performances and a dash of sledging and you have enough explosive to shake the pillars of Australian cricket.
In his first book, The 17th Man reveals all about the Tour of India, from HomeWorkGate to the dead pitches and everything in between.
