Favourite Book- Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by JK Rowling

Favourite Book- Fazail-E-Amaal by Muhammad Zakariya Kandhlawi

“This book did affect me as a human being, as well as a Muslim, since the first time I read it in 2003. This book is about the simple life of our Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) and his sayings. He spent his whole life as a role model for humanity, showing them the right pathway to help and care about others.”

Favourite Book- The Stand by Stephen King

“I love the thrill and the suspense in his novels. His style of writing has a way of involving the reader, so you can kind of feel like you are in the novel, and there is nothing better than a book that you just can’t put down. The reason I fell in love with his books is because when I was younger, my mother and I would spend a lot of time watching movies that recreated his books. As I got older and started reading at school, I chased after his books and became very fond of them.”

Sulieman Benn(West Indies)

Favourite Book- Supercat: The authorised biography of Clive Lloyd

“Clive Lloyd is one of the greatest West Indian cricketers of all time and his book gave me a good idea of the challenges he faced and how he overcame them. Reading about his performances and the thinking that went into his game provided me with a good idea of what it means to represent the West Indies and what playing for the West Indies means to the people.”

Favourite Book- It’s Not About the Bike by Lance Armstrong

“I like this book because I found it inspirational. I read it about a year ago. It is a sports autobiography so I found it particularly relevant to me and my career to see how another sportsman overcame the difficulties he faced in the sporting arena. I found his attitude of resilience in the face of illness and extreme challenges to be particularly motivating.”

Favourite Book- Talent Is Never Enough by John Maxwell.

“Maxwell has identified 13 choices that we need to make so as to maximise our talent which I found to be very enlightening. This includes teamwork, which divides the effort and multiplies the effect. So, I find the book thought-provoking considering its relevance in helping me to be the very best that I can be as a cricketer and human being.”

Favourite Book- Jack Reacher series by Lee Child

“The books I’m reading at the moment are my favourite – the Jack Reacher I enjoy biographies and autobiographies but I like the action and crime of the Jack Reacher books and they are a great read. I used to read a little bit at school and neglected it through college but have recently got right back into it and am glued to these books.”

Shane Watson(Australia)

Favourite Book- Open by Andre Aggasi

“I have read many books but my favourite out of all of these is Andre Agassi’s autobiography, Open. Throughout the whole book he describes the thoughts and feelings going through his mind so unbelievably well. It is like you, as the reader, are in the moment with him. An amazing man with an amazing story.”

Favourite Book- Goosebump series by R L Stine

“They were my absolute favourite books growing up and they were the first books I really enjoyed reading when I was about 10. Sometimes scary, sometimes funny and always exciting, the books follow kids dealing with monsters, ghosts and strange goings on. A brilliant read.”

Virat Kohli(India)

Favourite Book- Open by Andre Agassi

“I like Andre Agassi’s autobiography. The author tells the story of his remarkable career, which featured many ups and downs. The best part about the book is that at no point does the author try to project himself as a superhuman. He is as human as you and me, but a champion and an inspiration.”
