Somebody wrote recently about the difference between Indian and English schoolchildren’s preparations to becoming cricketers. Indians are brought up on hard concrete or dusty pitches – wastelands, sometimes – whereas little Englanders spend their youth on green, lush, soft pitches. This rather demonstrates the hard, no-frills “play it anywhere” attitude of young Dravid-wannabes.
