CRICKET BREAKS THROUGH IN THE LAND OF THE FREE
Major League Cricket (MLC) is here in America, and it put on a spectacle at its curtain-raiser last week. To add to the splendour, the opening ceremony featured an air show featuring a GB1 GameBird aircraft, a mid-innings drone show and fireworks to light up the night sky. But those were mere adornments, not the centrepiece of the night. It was a sideshow to what unfolded once cricket took the centerstage. Cricket built its own vibe. Incessant whistling, collective crescendos and heavy sighs built the mood.
