By now we’ve all heard the story that while Americans were locked down at home, proponents of 5G were busy installing it in public schools — presumably in an effort to bypass the watchful eyes of parents and others.

“We are banking on our Indian players. Our core is Indian. If you look at our top four of Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant, it’s very strong. You look at any IPL team, none of them have four Indian players who are so dynamic at the top of the order.”
