Across the line, feet wide apart, head still high

At a venue where one of India’s most stylistic batsmen cut, drove and flicked to cricketing glory, Karnataka chief minister B.S. Yediyurappa shows a preference for the long handle, points his toes towards covers and has a big gap between bat and pad as he eyes mid-wicket, at the inauguration of a tournament for the media, at the Central College grounds in Bangalore on Saturday.

Of course, the last time the chief minister held a bat…

And the time before that.
