The cricket stars salute the ultimate superstar

VISHWESHWAR BHAT writes: Quite appropriately, in today's one-day match at Indore, the three Kannadigas on the ground, players Rahul Dravid and Robin Utthappa, and the umpire A.V. Jayaprakash, all wore black bands in memory of Dr Raj Kumar.

And, quite fittingly, it took another Kannadiga, this one sitting in the commentary box, Javagal Srinath, to put the cricketers' gesture in perspective.
