AT LORDS CRICKET GROUND –by C Dabydeen

The ball bowled, the game played
at this neck of the woods—
the Lord’s Cricket Ground
in London, don’t you know?
Doosra in cold weather; oh,

but who takes a special catch?
Century-makers Kohli, Smith,
and Root are best, but not before
eating biryani I’ve heard—
in a Mumbai maidan.
