Popular biographies & autobiographies of Indian cricketers

The memoirs and biography of several well-known cricketers have been written after they have retired from competitive cricketing. “Playing it My Way” is the title of Sachin Tendulkar’s autobiography, while “Sunny Days” is the title of M.L. Jaisimha’s biography of Sunil Gavaskar, authored by M.L. Jaisimha.

An autobiography is a written account of one’s own life that is authored by the author. A biography, on the other hand, is a written account of someone’s life written by someone else.

The primary motivation for publishing an autobiography or biography is to disseminate information about one’s difficult life to the general public or to one’s fans. Occasionally, the author wishes to make a profit from the sale of his or her books.

In this post, we’ve compiled a collection of some of the most notable biographies and autobiographies of famous cricket players from around the world, which you may read online.
