From the late 19th century onwards, cricket was central to the culture of the British West Indies. By the 1890s, a small Indian middle class in British Guyana - present-day Guyana - began to advance their own credentials of belonging to the region. Seecheram explores the role of cricket in shaping Indo-Guyanese identity, from the example set by Prince Ranjitsinhji, or 'Ranji', to the seminal achievements of V.A. Veerasawmy and Chatterpaul 'Doosha' Persaud.
