I loved spending an hour or so watching these guys play cricket in the park, not far from my hotel.

 

It really felt like a quintessential Mumbai moment, but — at the same time — if  I squinted my eyes, it felt/looked exactly like guys playing baseball back home in Central Park.  And yes, of course I tried to hit the ball (don’t ask how I fared).

    “To busy earnin’ to worry about good looks, mate! Can’t get enough of this ball to save my life!”
    Imagine this man saying such after throwing himself into this shot. A coiled spring lets go in probably the wrong shoes but right for this moment.
    Beautiful perspective, Sart.

    I love how the cricket bat extends into the diagonal lines the buildings from. It’s a beautiful composition, great job

    This is what is called French cricket, played with a tennis ball. I don’t know why.

      No, French cricket the objective is to hit a players legs, this is just a pick up game played with a tennis ball. It is named after a ‘French cut’ – a badly played shot in which you play the ball onto your own stumps or results in a catch.
