Dive In


I was aghast to know that men’s uniforms were being cut up and re-stitched for women’s players. I had to ring up Nike and tell them that this was not on and that their design would be different.

That’s Vinod Rai—who was appointed by the Supreme Court as the head of the Committee of Administrators to oversee the cricket board—revealing the shocking neglect of the women’s team until 2006. FYI: it’s a whole lot less shocking if you’ve read our Big Story on why it’s taken ages to launch a women’s version of the Indian Premier League.
