The non-cricket picture of the IPL season, so far

On the ground, the son of a businessman who owned a ball bearings and valve factory, who has been the breadwinner of his family of a mother and five sisters, and a bulwark of India’s bowling attack. In the air and in his arms, the petite wife of India’s richest, most powerful businessman. The occasion: the triumph of the Mumbai Indians against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the first semi-finals of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
