To chronicle the 19-season first-class cricket career of Bishan Singh Bedi and trace the evolution of this monumental cricketer – from his humble background to scaling the heights of glory on cricket fields all over the world – is a challenge that at the very least, is daunting.

When it comes to Bishan, there is no grey. It is either black or white.’ This is what India’s greatest all-rounder, and cricketer of the century, Kapil Dev says. As Mike Brearley, the former England captain, stressed, ‘Bishan was no diplomat.’ He’s been a man unafraid to speak his mind, even if at times it bordered on the intemperate.

It was his bowling that mesmerized batsmen and seemingly lured them to their doom. His methods were unique and he copped his share of criticism, but his technique and delivery were faultless.

Bishan Singh Bedi is the proverbial ‘enigma wrapped in a mystery’ as a cricketer and a human being. This book, to commemorate his 75th birthday, is an effort to separate the chaff from the grain; and try and spread the flavour and spice of a unique talent.
