Both Sarkar and his collaborator VRG (the artist) grew up in India. Cricket is avidly followed there, as well as in over 100 nations worldwide, reaching over 2.5 Bil men AND women. Most cricketers develop their skills in either batting or bowling, some become "all rounders," and none want to let their team down while fielding!
This submission focuses on the batting aspect. One side shows the cricket bat and the ball. The other has the player wielding the bat to whack the ball and score runs.
