In the Australian summer of 2020-21, even as the world was grappling to find its feet amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the Indian men’s cricket team did the unthinkable: they beat the hosts in a bilateral Test series for a second time in three years in their own backyard. The Miracle Makers: Indian Cricket’s Greatest Epic, co-authored by renowned cricket writer Bharat Sundaresan with fellow Australia-based journalist Gaurav Joshi, captures that epic journey.

The book, published by Penguin Ebury Press, is a riveting account of how Team India came back from being down and out after the first Test in Adelaide to win the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2-1, breaching the “Gabba” fortress in Brisbane in the fourth and final Test with a second-string side.

Bharat Sundaresan is currently based in Adelaide, where he is the Australian correspondent for the cricket website Cricbuzz and does commentary for the Melbourne-based sports radio station SEN. Before that, he worked for over a decade at The Indian Express. He’s the author of two previous books—The Dhoni Touch, considered the most in-depth biography on Indian cricket legend M.S. Dhoni, and Believe, which he co-wrote with former Indian cricketer Suresh Raina.
