Englistan is both engaging and informative I have enjoyed reading it enormously It is of course a book ostensibly about Pakistan cricket but in reality it is about so much than this Dr Kamran Abbasi writes with great authority here is a man raised in Yorkshire the son of Pakistani parents who has bowled to Imran Khan and learned from him He has written for Wisden and many other cricketing publications and is a cricketing commentator and broadcaster In real life he is an extremely distinguished medical editor and journalistHe has mixed with the glitterati of Pakistan and English cricket His knowledge of Pakistan cricket is encylcopaedic but he also has a view of international cricket and its relevance to international relations that is both engaging and persuasive He writes with enviable modestyPakistan cricket s story is remarkable and Dr Abbasi makes a cogent and convincing case for Pakistan s cricketing history and fortunes being closely enmeshed with political and social life both in Pakistan and in that nation s global diaspora It is a story told with passion and convictionThe narrative digs deep into sporting and racial attitudes and social s both in Pakistan and in England and it all rings very true Dr Abbasi weaves these strands together seamlessly Not only is this book a definitive history of Pakistani cricket but it is also a penetrating social commentary of life and attitudes both in Pakistan and England By writing about all this with objectivity passion and humour Dr Abbasi expresses understanding and provides hope for the future not only for international cricket but also for the sort of society so many of us wish to inhabit in which there is social euality and racial and religious toleranceAt the end of a most dismal 2020 this book puts a spring in the step and is strongly recommended
