In focus: Mohali Mystery

Pakistan News & Features Services

The life in the subcontinent had come to a standstill on March 30, 2011 when arch-rivals Pakistan and India battled it out in the semifinals of the Cricket World Cup at Mohali in the presence of the Prime Ministers of both the countries. The interest was at fever pitch across the region. 

Ehsan Qureshi, having emerged as a specialist writer of World Cup books, had travelled all the way to Mohali for his reporting duties. Upon his return, he produced a book on Cricket World Cup 2011 and quite appropriated titled it ‘Mohali Mystery’ because the outcome of the semifinal tie was being viewed with suspicion in many circles. 

The entire hardbound book, spread over 272 pages, is printed on art paper in four colour to captivate the readers. The author has given an account of his journey and stay in India during the crunch matches of the tournament in his typically fluent style.
