A video of a game of cricket being played in the pouring rain in India demonstrates just how much the game means to the country's everyday life, and provides an insight into the nationwide participation that is beginning to be effectively tapped by scouts.

As village cricketers around England hurried off their respective pitches at the weekend, the footage proves that cricket in India has indeed become something of a religion, and such will only contribute to success at an international level.
