Jul 24, Mayank rated it it was ok. You expect a lot from the Magician; be a ball or pen in his hand. His aura and influence could be felt in the first edition of the IPL where his team played above their level and lifted the trophy. Much was attributed to his cricketing acumen, his inspiring influence on the youngsters and his leadership besides his own craft at turning the ball.
Sadly, the book never presents the candid Shane Warne we all know. The Showman is not there. Barring a few articles, most of them are his tributes to hi You expect a lot from the Magician; be a ball or pen in his hand. Barring a few articles, most of them are his tributes to his fellow players and almost all of them talk the same stuff. No article brings out the rivalry he shared. No ploys, no conversations, no dressing room talks shared.
One should question the rankings. It is an individual choice here and he is entitled to make one after all these years serving the game. He does surprise you with some omissions and some unexpected entries. But he never fully describes the basis. The book has its moments though, like the no holds barred article for a former SL captain, couple of incidents shared with his closest pals and some observations. These make you think of what this book could have been. He was not expected to know about each of them but still, he seems to be out of rhythm here.
