For many in their late 20s that aspirational feeling will have already started to fade away and for those in the 30s it would have evaporated completely And for some like Wasim Jaffer life beyond cricket isn’t a thought to be pondered upon yet I remember the dread with which Sitanshu Kotak the fevicol of domestic cricket used to view retirement “Kabhi kabhi sochtha hoon retirement ke baare mey toh daar lagta hai” he had said He finally retired last year just a few days before Tendulkar did and luckily and unsurprisingly he has become the coach of Saurashtra this year For him and many others life after cricket is cricket If suddenly on some desultory afternoon this month a window of couple of free hours opens up for you please do go to a nearby stadium and have a peep You might stumble on characters like Kotak Or you might see Sunil Joshi From a left-arm spinner who threatened never to retire from playing for Karnataka he has swiftly moved on to being a coach This will be his first season of coaching Jammu & Kashmir and his first match starts today against Mumbai at the Wankhede stadium Imagine a man from Karnataka who used to catch the 4 am train from the anonymous town of Gadag travel 70 kms to Hubli to play three hours of cricket catch the bus back to Gadag to get to his school is now coaching men from region where sport can seem so trivial on occasions and so

has now re-invented himself as a batting coach of some repute and is currently entrusted with the unenviable task of getting Mumbai a pale shadow of the giant that it used to be back into shape In Calcutta you might have a quite chuckle about how the migrant culture is reflected in the composition of its state team In Bhubaneswar you will stumble into Shiv Sunder Das who starting this season will be the batting coach of Orissa Once reckoned to be the next great Indian opening batsman he struggled to cope with the fact that his glory days were behind him but has now managed to rebound So do get out there this season and drop in a mail to us There could be lot of drudgery a rare moment of inspiration but rest assured there will always be human stories if you care to look For all the
