Red, round, and shiny

Two months ago I was in Meerut to do a story on how cricket balls are made. The process was fascinating to watch for the care involved as well as history at work - the process had not changed for hundreds of years. Equally interesting was watching the men at work, because theirs was a repetetive task and, even then, by the end of the day, they had created an object of beauty.

The piece on balls is now up on Cricinfo.

Darn, I was hoping you'd put up the part about your ending the Golden age of batting!

There was so much more to write! Maybe I should have had another piece about the end of batting.

See, that's why we keep blogs.
