Ramachandra Guha wins the Howard Milton Award for Cricket Scholarship 2021
Professor Ramachandra Guha is announced as the second winner of the Howard Milton Award for Cricket Scholarship. His latest work, The Commonwealth of Cricket: A Lifelong Love Affair with the Most Subtle and Sophisticated Game Known to Humankind (William Collins, 2020) is a personal account of the transformation of Indian cricket from the author’s youth in Uttar Pradesh in the 1960s through to his experience as a Board of Control for Cricket in India administrator in 2017.
Ramachandra Guha said, ‘I am delighted and honoured to accept this Award and look forward to giving the Sir Derek Birley keynote lecture at the BSSH Conference at De Montfort University in 2021.'
This award, a collaboration between The Cricket Society and the British Society of Sports History, seeks to recognise good cricket writing and research whether of an ‘academic’ or ‘popular’ nature. Winners are decided on the recommendations of a panel drawn from officers of both organisations.
