Garudachar, a brilliant all-rounder, which might as well be the story of one of the two players inducted to the Hall of Fame. The Ranji Trophy turns 80! Hence the book covers the story of B. B. Nimbalkar. It also talks about how and why the Rajasthan Royals players carried pink dolls to the field and also outside during the IPL matches.
