View from third man
Did you get here because you were frustrated by England grinding India at Kolkata? Now that you got here, do you recognize where 'here' is?
It is not a legendary ground, but I have a lot of memories. Designed more for a football or a hockey match, the 'B' Ground at Loyola College is used for cricket matches of lesser importance. Like the one happening in the picture, which has the Chennai-based alumni of India's best B-Schools - the IIMs and XLRI - play each other annually.
The average age of players in this tournament would be in the high 40s. But yet, this bunch of players would surely have done better against the Poms!
