Key Info
  • Cricket and equality in an Indian school
  • Duration: 03:25
  • As a private Indian school prepares for its end of term cricket tournament, their (male) star player talks about his aspirations to become a professional. Meanwhile, a 12 year old female student is less than impressed by her spectator only role, and feels she should be able to play. During a break time game she is able to take on the boys, however sceptical they may be. When a female teacher offers the girls the chance to form their own team, lack of interest means the idea is abandoned. First broadcast in August 2009 on BBC Four as part of the series, Indian School.
