23 Yards returns

A few months before India Uncut began, I began blogging with a cricket blog on Cricinfo called 23 Yards. I took a sabbatical from Cricinfo at the end of last year, and 23 Yards went underground because of that. Well, it's back in action. You can see the new, refurbished 23 Yards here, and view the archives here.

My first real post this time around makes a case for coaches in cricket being given far more power than they currently enjoy, somewhat like what soccer coaches have. My post begins:
Imagine two boys, Manu and Pikoo. They both go to work for Bharat Newspaper Distributors, an agency that distributes newspapers. They are part of a large team of delivery boys.

Bharat, who runs the agency, tells Manu one day, “Manu, my group of boys is very inefficient, they keep delivering papers late, my customers will switch, at this rate. I need them to put their shoes on, I mean, to pull their socks up. From today, I am making you responsible for timely delivery of newspapers.”
So what does this have to do with cricket? Read the full post here.
