#1. How to play cricket - Sir Don Bradman
'Play the game wholeheartedly, with spirit and zest, and play to win, but, irrespective of the outcome, always treat your opponents as you would have them treat you, and play it as a sport.' In other words, play cricket in the fullest meaning of the term. So were the thoughts of the greatest cricketer in the history of the game. This book was an autobiography of Don Bradman in which he mentioned all the perspectives of playing the game. The basics of bat grip, shot selection, the mindset of a captain, all were described along with scientific explanation behind it.
