I hate to say this…

…about a piece on cricket written by an American, but this is one of the best short works on cricket I have read in a long time, in fact I would put it in my top five or so. Perhaps sometimes you need an outsider’s perspective to get a fresh outlook.

It really is well worth reading, an excellent exploration of cricket’s place in India and the phenomena that is Sachin Tendulkar, and of the changes that are sweeping the cricketing landscape challenging both its history and its future.
