The Corridor of Uncertainty
In 1979, Afghanistan erupted into one of the most brutal civil wars ever. The fighting lasted almost a decade, throwing the country into a period of political instability, harsh leadership, and extreme danger. Hundreds of thousands of civilians died, and millions relocated to refugee camps. The rest of the world began to believe that violence would always define Afghans.
However, deep in the refugee camps of Pakistan, displaced native Afghan children had a dream to unite their country once again with peace. The solution was disguised in the game of cricket. These children began to learn cricket, and persevered against the danger, criticism, and unrest to create the first ever Afghan national cricket team. Follow their inspiring journey to change Afghanistan in one of the most under-told, heart-warming sports stories of all time.
"This is an inspirational story of young men from refugee camps who form the first ever Afghan national cricket team. Nihar Suthar endured threats to get the incredible tale you now hold in your hands."
-James Bradley, New York Times Best-Selling Author
"This is a book like no other with the truth cleverly woven between the indomitable strength of the human spirit and international cricket. How a handful of young refugees beginning with a mere tennis ball and bat, first defied their own parents and faced up to the brutal Taliban but yet determinedly guided Afghanistan to qualify and play in the 2015 World Cup is amazing."
-Muttiah Muralitharan, Former Sri Lankan National Cricket Player
"The Corridor of Uncertainty is a superb book and one that deserves to be widely read. There is absolutely no reason why it would not appeal to every single one of the millions of readers who made The Kite Runner a best seller. It has the potential to be the biggest selling book about the game of cricket ever written. The most thought provoking book on any subject I have read in years."
-Martin Chandler, CricketWeb
"I've read cricket books from WG Grace to Sachin Tendulkar, but nothing has been more inspiring than Suthar's The Corridor of Uncertainty, and the story of how cricket helped mend a torn nation."
-Joseph Romanos, New Zealand Journalist and Author
