Every Australian cricketer ends up writing a few autobiographical books. Each book has a liberal dose of controversial things written about Indian cricket and its cricketers. The news hungry Indian media laps up the controversy and rakes up a storm (I wouldn’t be surprised if the publishers and media are hand in glove here).The controversy involving their beloved cricketers takes a cricket crazy nation by storm. Then a lot of books sell in India. Probabaly more than the numbers sold in Australia itself. After all few Australians would be interested in reading so much about Indian cricketers. (I am really interested in knowing the sales numbers split between the two countries). Australian cricketers make easy money. Wonder why cricketers from other nations haven’t gotten into the act yet?
