We were surprised when Nobel laureate Abhijit Banerjee was felicita­ted at the centenary celebrations of Calcutta’s South Club, but it seems the man is a tennis fan. Why, a few sets twice a week...frequent conversations about the sport...long viewing history of Djoker, Rafa and Fedex...he shows characteristic perspicacity. What’s singularly fascinating is his wish for Randomised Control Trials—his professional shtick—to be used in sports. At the grassroots or at the elite level? An answer is awaited.
