'India's exit from the World Cup has so disgusted some of the country's villages - 28 of them to be exact - that they've banned cricket. One minute the nation's obsessed, the next the council of the Jind district says the game was "no different from alcoholism or the DJs who dish out noisy and senseless Bollywood songs and western music." Playing is now banned, as is watching on television - and the offence of cricket enjoyment is so bad that "any villager who opposes the ban will be ostracised." And we thought it was only a game.'
