Kapil Dev, Tavaré and me: Bollywood brings India's 1983 triumph to life
The unexpected World Cup final win against West Indies is celebrated in a new blockbuster. The Guardian’s Toby Chasseaud did his best to play his partAt the end of the season, just as I’m packing my kit away for the winter, I see an advert circulating on social media: “Skilled cricket players needed. Casting feature film based on 1983 cricket World Cup. Players to represent West Indies, England, Australia and Zimbabwe teams.” Perhaps I shouldn’t hide away my whites just yet, I think.I send the talent agency a headshot and a brief summary of my playing ability, and a week later I’m asked to Lord’s to audition for the part of Chris Tavaré. To prepare I’m asked to “have a look at some online footage of how he bowls, bats, catches, celebrates, etc, so you have an idea of his personality traits and style”. Continue reading...

The Guardian view on internet access: life, death and learning
The coronavirus pandemic is showing that the digital divide has serious repercussions for people in the UK and around the worldCoronavirus – latest updatesSee all our coronavirus coverageEven when our ability to spend and socialise has been curtailed in drastic ways, wealth and deprivation make themselves felt as potently as ever. Just as physical isolation is easier for those with warm, dry houses and spacious gardens than for those in cramped and run-down flats or hostels, so those with speedy broadband packages are now living more comfortably than those who rely on pay-as-you-go smartphones. The first group can shop online for groceries, work from home, video chat with ageing parents or take part in online classes. The second group may struggle. A few in the UK are not online at all.The pandemic is underscoring the fact that internet access is no longer a luxury, but a necessity to participate in society fully. More than half the world’s population is now online. But access varies hugely according to the development level of countries, the wealth and education of individuals, and gender: fewer women than men use the internet. In some places, the ability to use a crucial source of information may be a matter of life and death right now (even if not all the information is reliable). Millions of people are actively denied access; Human Rights Watch has urged governments that have imposed shutdowns – such as Bangladesh and Myanmar – to lift them, warning that they could prove deadly given coronavirus’s spread.
