Playthings | Smriti Mandhana's Ton Against Odds; Retirement Spree in Indian Hockey and More
Playthings, Newsclick Sports' show is a deep dive into the big sports headlines from the week with insight and opinion aplenty.
In our first episode, Siddhanth Aney and Leslie Xavier look at Smriti Mandhana's ton against Australia in the women's pink ball Test, and its significance considering women cricketers in the country, including elites, hardly get match time compared to their much more privileged male counterparts. Other stories discussed in the episode include Chris Gayle's bubble fatigue at the Indian Premier League (IPL), the three high-profile retirements in the Indian hockey team (Rupinder Pal Singh, Birendra Lakra and SV Sunil); and, last but not least, a look ahead into India's campaign at the SAFF football championship.
