One extremely good article about the Cricket World Cup by Wright Thompson.

And, arguably, an equally bad one by Aakar Patel.

At this point, Aakar Patel is even beyond satire. He leaves me with so many emotions, only a few of them good. This is how he starts:

It is thought that India loves cricket. This is incorrect. India loves India. Cricket gives us the opportunity to express this affection.

It left me thinking for a minute, laughing for the next thirty, and thinking for one again. But that’s how he rolls.
