Jaggi Vasudev, the man better known as Sadhguru, was at the cricket today. There was a flurry of activity around him as cricket fans and fans of his brand of spirituality sprinted to get selfies with him. Sadhguru has been interested in cricket --- he’s been recorded playing the game with Sachin Tendulkar, and at one time he had some advice for Ajinkya Rahane on how to “make the right decision”, and to RP Singh on “how to bowl in the death overs”. We had a simpler question to him today: You’ve been to other matches? This is the first one, he said. Didn’t work for India. 

Church of Cricket

Good Sunday service at the church close to the cricket ground at Edgbaston --- for 15 pounds, you could park your car on the grounds of the church for the whole day. Churches are struggling to keep up with the maintenance, so cricket parking on Sunday is an idea that works well. Other residents of the area were keen to make some money in this manner, too. “The council charged 60 pounds as fine the last time people parked their cars on the street,” said a man renting parking space for 25 pounds for the day. “Much better to park here bro!”
