With summer holidays and IPL season 2, things cannot get better for children all over India. I took a detour yesterday on my way back home and chanced upon some kids playing cricket. They were having immense fun. Seeing my car approaching, the batter quickly towed the stumps. Wondering how? That's convenient cricket aka gully cricket.
Generally it's a brick or a plastic bottle that is found roleplaying stumps. But this is indeed cool, right? There was someone silently on the watch, or should I say umpiring the game. He looked quite appreciative about the whole thing.
I wanted to capture the fun but didn't want to interrupt the game and annoy them. I pulled over on the side of the road, went up to them with my cam and meekly asked, "Can I take a few pictures?" They gave the nod in unison. They were more than happy and seemed to be enjoying the attention.
