In this interview, cricket is discussed as a game with elements that are close to the Indian psyche. Although cricket was initially believed to be an Indian game that was accidentally discovered by the British, in reality it is the other way around. In his interview, Prabhash Joshi looks at the different facets of cricket, such as the first great Indian cricketer, the first Indians who played cricket, the issues of Indian cricket that Indians are obsessed with, and women cricketers. He also discusses the possibility of cricket becoming an element of cultural globalization in India.

Keywords:   cricket, Indian psyche, first Indian cricketer, issues of Indian cricket, women cricketers, cultural globalization
