Book Review
“Coaching Beyond: My Days with the Indian Cricket Team”, by R. Sridhar and R. Kaushik, is a book that focuses mainly on R. Sridhar’s seven-year stint as the Indian cricket team’s fielding instructor. This work is more anecdotal than scientific. The 208-page book at hand tends to offer stories of recovery and genuine devotion of all those players of the Indian squad who, through their grit, give way to a worldwide acknowledgment of the country.

The book has eleven chapters, out of which the last chapters shed great light on how COVID-19 affected every walk of life, including sports. The book’s chapters have been divided methodically as it tracks every element responsible for team India’s current condition, which has become nothing short of robust and tenacious.
