Workers pack cricket balls at a factory in Meerut, 80 km (50 miles) northeast of Delhi, January 31, 2011 as cricket equipment makers race to meet a demand surge ahead of the Cricket World Cup. The factory produces around 600 balls a day, and each costs retailers 60-600 rupees ($1.30-$13). BDM, a family cricket equipment business for almost 90 years, has made bats, balls and other equipment for most of India's top cricketers, and international stars such as Sri Lanka's Sanath Jayasuriya and the West Indies legend Brian Lara. India's top cricketers are revered in a country where the sport is almost a religion. Devoid of heavy machinery, the workshop is filled with the thuds of hammers on leather, banging of cork into cores, and the tinkle of needle on steel as dozens of men furiously stitch together 600 balls every day. The workers are paid 5,000 rupees ($110) a month, plus performance-related bonuses. Picture taken January 31, 2011.
