Book Launch of The Fire Burns Blue


India lost the final of the 2017 Women’s World Cup in front of a sell-out crowd at Lord’s, but that tournament marked a tipping point for the sport in the country. Today, if a little girl dreams of being like Mithali Raj or Smriti Mandhana, it’s because of those that came before them and fought the early battles. 

The Fire Burns Blue traces the journey of women’s cricket in India over the past four decades. It is the story of extraordinary women playing the gentleman’s game for the sheer joy of it, wresting for themselves their rightful place in its firmament.
