Street cricket chronicles: tip-top, connection, and taking panga in Delhi
Play • 1 hr 21 min

We are happy to kickstart a new series: street cricket chronicles.

Here we hope to bring out the cricket culture in different cities at the most amateur levels: whether it is on the streets, in the gullies and driveways and terraces, on beaches, or in the parks.

In this episode we chat with two guests who grew up in Delhi in the 1990s.

Talking points:

Tip-top and connections

Breaking windows, damaging cars

Spinning the Cosco cricket ball

Off-side only rules

Mimicking Mark Waugh, Lara, Aravinda et al.

Bet-matches for pizzas at Nirula's

Playing (and watching) cricket in the Delhi chill

Visiting the Kotla

Watching Sachin's 35th hundred
