Capturing Cricket: Steve Waugh in India




The ‘Iceman’ cometh in Capturing Cricket: Steve Waugh in India. Steve Waugh, the mastermind behind Australia’s golden age of cricket, has never forgotten his first international tour: India, 1986 – a country in which cricket is a religion. Over 30 years and hundreds of cricket tours later, Steve heads back to take on a new challenge – to discover the true spirit of cricket and understand its unique capacity to unite. Flanked by a mentor, Magnum photographer Trent Parke, and good friend Jason Brooks, Steve trails the country with his camera in hand, capturing India’s love of cricket.

Crafted from candid, observational footage from the trip and with additional interviews – including Indian cricket stars Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid, Australian cricket legends Adam Gilchrist and Lisa Sthalekar, plus former AFL footballer Adam Goodes – Capturing Cricket: Steve Waugh in India explores Steve’s relationship with cricket and uncovers why India means so much to one of the world's most revered cricketers.

Visiting the Taj Mahal in Agra, Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore, the Maharajah Lukshmi Vilas Palace in Vadodara, HPCA Stadium in Dharamshala, Oval Maidan in Mumbai, as well as Delhi and Kolkata, Capturing Cricket is always jovial, warm and inspiring – and ultimately a story of the power of seeing the bigger picture, and the opportunity for sport to be a great equaliser.
