A truism you usually come across while describing Indians is that we lack a sense of humour. For a country that is made of some of the most colourful personalities in the world, we are also a nation that shows an almost-inborn reluctance to laugh or to make others laugh. Not surprisingly, humour as a genre in publishing is either not attempted in India, or, if a brave soul does try, it more often than not meets with bookstand failure. Anyone who knows Sandeep Patil intimately, or perhaps even cursorily, will readily acknowledge that if any brave soul was needed to initiate a book of amusing anecdotes from the world of cricket, it would be this tall, bearded cricketer who was as dashing a batsman on the field as he was an incorrigible prankster of it.
- Caught & Told - Humorous Cricketing Anecdotes (World Edition) is a book by Sandeep Patil and Clayton Murzello based on a project conceptualized by Jai Bokey. The book which contains humorous cricket related anecdotes from past and present cricketers, who have been pranksters and `victims` in the world of cricketing humour.
- Among the current stars: Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag, Sourav Ganguly and Harbhajan Singh have contributed to the book while Greg Chappell has written the foreword. Contributors from abroad have come from Australians Ian Chappell, Ashley Mallett, New Zealanders Glenn Turner and John Wright.
