'And now a quick recap

of the two dismissals.'

'Sehwag leg before to Malinga.'

'Caught right plum

in front of the wickets.'

'And Sachin Tendulkar caught

behind off a very thick edge.'

'Muttiah Muralitharan!'

'The Wizard of the Emerald Isle'

'being introduced

into the attack!'

Excuse me, Gary.

- Yes.

If a wicket goes down,

I think I should go in.

But Yuvi is padded up

and ready.

No, it's Murali.

I think I should go in.

You sure?

- Yes.

Just tell him, I'll.. I'll go.

'Go, go, go, go, go!'

'Has to hurry,

chance of a run out!'

'Gambhir survives!'

'Catch it!'

'That's a stunning catch!

Kohli has to depart!'

'India now in a..'

Pan Singh Dhoni?

Congratulations, it's a boy.

Mr. Ghosh.

Congratulations, it's a girl.

Thank you.

Rascals, you have a sister.

Both are okay, Dhoni.

Mother and daughter.

But Doctor,

the nurse just said

it's a boy.

Huh! Did she say boy?

- Yes.

Just a minute.

What did Pan Singh Dhoni have?

- A boy.

And Ghosh?

- Girl.


You're right. It's a boy.

And Mr. Ghosh, congratulations

for the baby girl.



If they continue like this someday

the babies will get exchanged!

Mr. Dhoni.

Just don't argue with him.

- Okay, sir.

Just listen to what

he says and say yes.

Right, sir. - Actually,

Mr. Deval is rarely wrong.

He has played for Ranji.

And he was also the Vice-President

of the Bihar Cricket Association.


- Yes, sir.

Pause here.

Who commissioned this AV, Roy?

Mr. Sinha did.

There's something I must

tell him over the phone.

Remind me later.

Yes, sir.

Rakesh, we're in the 90s now.

- Right, sir.

Change the sitar music

in the background.

Yes, sir.

And reshoot the ground

footage in three months.

Is there anything wrong

with the ground footage?

You call this a ground!

Is this where you want

our children to practice

and compete with kids

from other states?

Reshoot this ground

in three months.

We're putting in

a turf wicket here.

I'm going to completely

revamp this stadium.

Sir, may I ask you something,

if you don't mind?

Why aren't Bihar's players

regulars in the national team?

Isn't that what you want to ask?

Yes, sir.

We love politics more

than cricket. Get it?

See you.

- Yes.


- Yes, sir.

Why haven't you

watered the ground yet?

The pump operator, Pan Singh,

is refusing.

What do you mean

by he's refusing?

He's saying

that there's no water.

Get him here.

- Yes, sir.

What's going on?

- Don't worry, sir.

Pan Singh, Mr. Deval is

calling you to the ground.

What happened now?

Be strict with these people.

- Yes, sir.

Do you see

the condition of the ground?

Hello, sir.

- Hello.

Why haven't you

watered the ground yet?

Sir, right now the water is being

supplied to the family quarters.

I'll water the ground

if there's any left.

What's the problem

in doing it now?

If the family quarters

don't get enough

I'll have to answer to them.

And what about the stadium?

If the families need to eat

the children also need to play.

- Yes, sir.

Do you expect the

children to play on this?

You're right, sir.

Then water the ground right now.


it'll be wrong to do it now.

I have a suggestion.

I'll water the field

at night after 11.

That will solve everyone's problems.

What time do you sleep?

Currently I'm in the morning shift.

So I sleep by 9 p.m.

Can you sleep at 9 p.m.

and wake up at 11 p.m. again?

Yes, don't worry about that.

Goodbye, sir.

What do you mean he won't play?

Try to understand, Mrs. Shukla.

The match is just three days away

and now you're saying he won't play.

If he doesn't play, who's

going to do the wicket-keeping?

His father is getting furious.

His board exams are

just around the corner.

If he wastes his time playing cricket

then when will he study?

But the exams start

after two months.

Exactly my point,

only two months are left.

Wicket-keeping won't

do him any good.

And if his percentage

drops even by a notch

his father will create a ruckus.


your son plays really well.

You're ruining his life

for a few marks.

Let him play,

he'll make it really big someday.

How big?

At the most he'll go

from Ranchi to Jamshedpur.

No, Mr. Banerjee,

please spare him.

His father wants to

make him a lawyer.

He wants to send him to Kolkata.

Come, Pintu. Come on.

- Mrs. Shukla.

Listen to me!

His present is still uncertain

and she wants to shape his future.

Chittu, come here.

Yes, sir?

Who's that boy?

- Goalkeeper? - Yes.

That's Mahi. He's my classmate.

Look, don't tell him I asked.

Ask him if he's interested

in playing cricket.

What did he say?

He said, 'Are you mad?

Who wants to play with a tiny ball?'





tell Mahi to do his homework!

Mahi, do your homework!

Just five more minutes.


Mahi, dad is home!

'...the world of architecture.


'The Taj Mahal is one of the seven..'

- Here.

'...wonders of the world..'

'Which he built for his wife..'

They sat down to study

after they saw my cycle.

Of course.

Why don't you two fix

a daily routine for yourselves?

2 hours for studies and
