Indians, surprisingly rubbish at cricket

I was on a mode of public transport today. I was trying to understand an Indian newspaper, but, by gad! they don’t make it easy over here.

The newspaper situation has improved significantly since coming to Mumbai. Although the headlines in the Delhi Times were hilarious, the actual content was unintelligible.

I was reading the snazzy Mumbai Mirror on a bus, and a bloke next to me smiled and stabbed his creaking finger at a picture of Virender Sehwag.

“Sourav Ganguly” said he.

“Er… No. Sehwag,” said I.


Like I say, Indians are a bit rubbish when it comes to cricket.

I think that people from Twickenham know more about Indian cricket than people from Mumbai. As a general rule.

I am sure this was a stray incident. a one-in-a-million. I doubt if you would see the same thing happening if you try again with another arbitrary person on the streets.

The cricketing headlines in Indian newspapers, though, are not. Cringe-worthy, in one word.
