Chapter: One

Why the fuck did you have to move? Ishaan’s scream drowned out the stadium din on the TV. I had shifted up to a sofa from the floor.

“Huh?’ I said. We were in Ishaan’s house Ishaan, Omi, and I. Ishaan’s mom had brought in tea and chakra for us. It is more comfortable to snack on the sofa. That is why I moved.’

Tendulkar’s gone. Fuck, now at this stage. Omi, don’t you dare move now. Nobody moves for the next five overs.”

I looked at the TV. We were chasing 283 to win. India’s score a ball ago was 256-2 after forty-five overs. Twenty-seven runs in five overs, with eight wickets to spare and Tendulkar on the crease. A cakewalk. The odds were still in India’s favor, but Tendulkar was out. And that explained the frowns on Ishaan’s forehead.

The khakra’s crispy, Omi said. Ishaar glared at Omi, chiding him for his shallow sensory pleasure in a moment of national grief. Omi and I kept our teacups aside and looked suitably mournful.

The crowd clapped as Tendulkar made his exit. Jadeja came to the crease and added six more runs. End of forty-six overs, India 262/3. Twenty-one more runs to win in four overs, with seven wickets in hand.

Kids would rather read textbooks than play cricket and be reminded of India’s humiliation. Why on earth had I started this business? What an idiot I am?

Why couldn’t I open a sweet shop instead? Indians would always eat sweets. Why sports? Why cricket?

That’s fucking-follow-on-fantastic,’ Ish said, inventing his own phrases for the ent. He clenched his fist and came dangerously 1 lose to the TV. We had a moment.

them by their balls at 291/8, and now I hey ask us to follow on? Should we turn off the TV? 1 said. Should we close the shop for good?

I thought. ‘Wait, I want to see this. I want to see how our team makes eye contact when they lose so badly, Ish said. They are not making eye contact.

You are just watching them on TV. Omni said. If this match is a draw, I will treat you all to dinner. Ok, two dinners,’ Ish said. For its second innings, India made one change.

It replaced the opener, Ramesh, with another new guy called Laxman. The team is full of people with contacts.

Everyone is getting their turn today, Ish said as the Indian openers took the crease for the second follow-on innings But Laxman connected with the ball and bat.

He slammed four after four. At the end of the third day, India stood at a respectable 254/4. Adding that to the first innings score of 171, India needed only 20 runs to match Australia’s first innings of 445.
