Shourov, Brian and Abhik

Before Kohli and Tendulkar, there was one man who single-handedly carried India's hopes with the bat.   In this week's family special, Abhik's brother Shomik comes on to discuss an uncharacteristically swashbuckling innings from the one and only Sunil Gavaskar against the mighty Windies of the eighties.

The discussion soon turns to the blind hero worship that characterises Indian cricket.  But are all of our heroes worthy of our adulation and what happens when our heroes don't live up to our expectations ?
