Cricket Comes to Netflix with “Selection Day” – Coming December

Netflix has announced the release date for an upcoming cricket-themed Indian series “Selection Day” as December 28th. The series, based on the book the same name by Aravind Adiga is about cricket and corruption and was announced last year.

Selection Day, a compelling story of cricket and corruption, is based on Booker Prize winning author Aravind Adiga’s novel of the same name. This coming of age tale depicts the glory and rivalry in the city of Mumbai.

Manjunath Kumar, fourteen, knows he is good at cricket – if not as good as his elder brother Radha. He knows that he fears and resents his domineering and cricket-obsessed father, admires his brilliantly talented sibling and is fascinated by the world of CSI and by curious and interesting scientific facts. But there are many things about himself and about the world that he doesn’t know. When Manju begins to get to know Radha’s great rival, a boy as privileged and confident as Manju is not, everything in Manju’s world begins to change and he is faced with decisions that will change both his sense of self and of the world around him.
