Don’t worry so much—that India might be a pacecr short at the World Cup, or that a brittle middle-order doesn’t have the wherewithal to negotiate the yawning mid-overs if exp­osed (as they will) to the elements. Relax and take heart from our boys at the departure lounge in Mumbai. Dhoni, Chahal and Bhuvi are immersed in PUBG, as Pandya and Kohli seem to have an intense confab. Best o’luck, boys!

CSK Watch In this glad season for the Chennai Super Kings, ace atta­cking spinner Imran Tahir has been a sight to behold—his tight-fisted, spread-armed sprint after a wicket popular as ever on and off the field. After another easy win, skipper Dhoni dared Tahir’s son for a race. We don’t know who won, but it dissolved into a softly-softly celebration. Can Uncle Cool do it like Dad? We doubt it.

He paid for the shoes so he tied the laces too! Ha, so we paraphrase an Instagram post by Sakshi Dhoni, adm­iring the wrists that bowlers fear perform a prosaic job. The piece, of course, is adm­irable because of Ms Dhoni herself, effortlessly chic in a skirt and a top, a cooler persona than the one we see cheering in IPL matches.
