A Parantha lunch at the neighbourhood sweet shop, India Bangla ODI on TV. Two little girls either side watching as if their Dad’s playing – but they look at the ads with that same fixated pointless look. They’re TV addicts, like we’re cricket addicts.
I try to make sense of this game; Bangla is a light snack. Then I take some photographs – of the telecast and the mini thali. What else does this series make me do?
Watch cricket with the back of my head.
What will a Bangla win do for the series? Guess not much.
