Hit for Six

Hit for Six

‘Hit For Six’ is a captivating fictional story of a playboy West Indies cricketer who fights the demons of his past, including a match-fixing charge, and learns about love while struggling for his last chance to play in a major global tournament and earn the respect of his estranged father, a former great West Indies player. Alex Nelson, a talented but inconsistent cricketer, has been sidelined from the WI team for scuffling with his coach, Amir Misra of India. Now out of the team for three years, he pursues an unlikely quest to get back on the team for the last chance to play in the Global One Day Series. He is fueled by a burning desire to regain the respect of his estranged and critical father, a former great West Indies player, who was unfairly denied a chance to play in the first Global One Day Series.
