Junior Premier League

The First XI
A novel by

The story of India's most exciting junior cricket league

When twelve-year-old Neel goes to Ranchi for the summer vacation, he meets Sachin, a local boy who has an amazing new bowling action. Over weeks of practising with each other, Neel realizes that Sachin could be the next Sunil Narine or Muralitharan.

Once the vacation is over, Neel returns to Delhi and forgets about Sachin in the excitement of preparing for a place in the Junior Devils, the Delhi team of the first-ever Junior Premier League tournament. But by a quirk of fate, Sachin moves to his uncle's home in Delhi when his father is transferred out of Ranchi. He finally gets his chance to join Neel in the Junior Devils. What follows is a roller coaster of hope, fear, excitement and disappointment that is the lot of every cricketer. It's not easy being a JPL star. But for Sachin, Neel and their friends, the journey's just about to begin.
