Unlikely Beginnings: A Soldier's Life
"Cricket is one of the most popular games in Pakistan and Fazal Mahmood's autobiography makes riveting reading. An outstanding cricketeer, Fazal made a vital contribution to Pakistan cricket in its formative years. His memoirs provide anecdotal accounts of clubs and first class cricket in pre-1947 India. These anecdotes bring to life not only some of the great heroes of Pakistani cricket, but also some of the greatest cricketeers of the world during the 1940s and 1950s."--BOOK JACKET.
