Rolling on the floor in abandon...

is what Sonny boy does when we start to play with the ball.

This is an offshoot of IPL and all those cricket matches he's been watching with the Acha. Balls caught neatly as a matter of course are not applauded much even if it involves the taking of a wicket. Turns out he's seen the Acha APPLAUD WITH GUSTO when the fielders fling themselves to the ground and grapple with the ball.

Which is what he does now.
A perfectly decently thrown ball, perfectly catchable too... involves much of throwing himself to the ground. and rolling about. and getting up with grimaces/glee. and limping back to his place.

All this done with a secret eye to applause. Which he gets in good dose. He does not see, my dear clown of a son, that half of the laughter is in sheer mirth at his clowning around.
