Jack Hoyle is writing a book on the madness that cricket incites in Indian minds. He is a fascinating photographer and here he produces street cricket in India while he travelled the country during the IPL. Here’s presenting the first part of the three-part series. Enjoy 🙂
In the backstreets of New Delhi a group of youths squeeze a quick game in.
In Varanasi a group of boys find space between the winding alleys. If the wicket keeper misses it’s a long chase to retrieve the ball out of the Ganges.
The emblem of a street cricket club in Varanasi.
A man sits oblivious as a young cricketer strikes the ball, while playing on the banks of the Ganges, Varanasi.
A typical Sunday in Khajuraho; the streets are closed and the adults look on as the young boys take each other on.
A dubious action, but you can’t fault the effort as a young bowler comes steaming in.
