Where else but in Varanasi would cricket be played in traditional attire from India, accompanied by a commentary in Sanskrit?

Ganesh Dutt Shastri has been organising a cricket tournament with these features every year for the past ten years. What makes this tournament special is that the players, dressed in dhotis and short-sleeved kurtas, are all students and scholars of Sanskrit, according to ANI.

Shastri said that the motive is to make these students consider international cricket as a viable option in life. They’ll have to swap their outfits, though, if they get there.
