And then there was one

India's new reality show, Cricket Star, kicked off this week at its HQ in Bombay.

The show's premise is to find one lucky contestant (from the final 22) who will win a professional contract with Leicestershire CC.

Read the Simon Hughes piece from the Telegraph, which includes this TV money shot:
"The eviction, involving Manjrekar stepping forward to remove the Cricket Star
badge from the doomed player's breast pocket, before he is cast out through the
studio door, may sound brutal but it does make great TV."
