A day in the cricket-mad parks of Mumbai

Both India and England's men's cricket teams are playing warm-up matches in Mumbai ahead of their World Cup T20 campaigns.

But just down the road from their bases, thousands of Mumbai cricketers will be taking to the city's parks, known as maidans, to play their own equally competitive matches.

Every inch of these small patches of green is hot property as hundreds of organised, and disorganised, matches squeeze on.

BBC News spent a day amongst the action.
