    If U.S. papers can outsource copy-editing to India, why not the other way 'round? I stand ready to edit cricket stories.

    How can Time run a story like this without asking/answering the question of whether newspaper circulation is audited like it is in the United States? The answer, as anyone who bothers to spend three minutes Googling, is apparently most Asian publications don't have audited circulation, so they can claim any circulation figures they want.

    I wouldn't change a word! You don't see too many "placid pitch" references in football gamers. I'll have to sneak one in next year.

    Do they do furloughs over there?

    I've been following cricket for over a year now. I just happened to catch it once as a fluke while looking for stuff to watch on the net. It's awesome, better than baseball.

    Turns out now I can tell my wife all those times I stayed up until 6 a.m. watching an ODI were actually vital career training.

    They have no shortage of potential customers. China alone has a billion and a half people. Granted, not all of them read, but a certain percentage do.

    As for the cricket story: any "wicked gogglies" in there?

    Not as of yet. The print market is actually growing in India and Indonesia, although of course the growth in the English-language press is going to be less.
