India vs England, 2nd Test: Zafar Ansari pitches it on the right length
What’s the first and the last line of your dissertation? Zafar Ansari, England’s left-arm spinner, blinks, mumbles, and says, ’Huh, I can’t quite remember, it’s in my laptop, you can read it!’. It must not have been easy to remember for he had written 40,000 words on African-Americans time during the rise of Black Power movement in the 60’s. Ansari could perhaps have written thousands of words on the colonial times in the city he now finds himself in for his third and series’ second Test. Several tomes already exist, some written by English bureaucrats from pre-independent India, that offer astounding details on the farcical duck-shoots organised for English lords to observations, not all complimentary of course, on the natives of Vizag.
