Game Time: Reckoning with racism in cricket and the setbacks at Thailand Open

In this episode, Indian Express’ sports writer Shivani Naik joins Mihir Vasavda to first talk about the significance of the Sydney Test being stopped after Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah allegedly faced racial abuses from the crowd, and whether this will lead to lasting changes in cricket and make players introspect.

And next, they discuss India’s poor performance at the Thailand Open (the year’s first badminton tournament), why it shouldn’t worry us, and what it means for PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal’s Olympics prospects (14:15).
