HYDERABAD: What to spend on with the World Cup season underway
Hard-core cricket fans will appreciate the World Cup Special – The Cricket Book. The quirky notebook, with a built-in game of cricket, has been designed by The Bicycleman & The Geek Company. Each page has a run printed on it, and there is a scoreboard, too, to keep track of your scores. The game is simple: pick your team, then open and shut the book, noting the ‘score’ each time you do. If the page says ‘out’, then your batsman has to leave the pitch. The perfect distraction to keep you occupied when the game is not on TV.
The fan cup
Prove your love for the game every time you sip your coffee. Chumbak’s Great Indian Cricket Fan Mug sports their trademark motifs and caricatures, along with little speech bubbles with snappy lines.
We couldn’t help but love how the Cognetix World Cup 2015 headphones go perfectly well with Team India’s blue jersey. The headset’s two speakers are tilted at 90 degrees, ensuring a great fit. It also has a handy fold-up headband for easy portability.
Delhi-based designer, Sakshee Pradhan, has launched a World Cup collection under her label Schon. It includes rompers, tops, trousers and more, in shades of blue. They may not work for the stadium, but that’s not the only place you can prove your loyalty.
