These are simply stunning: Posters of our favourite IPL players in Indian folk art

While the entire nation is cheering for their favourite IPL teams from their respective homes, Bengaluru-based Sriram Sabhapathy thought of giving cricket an artsy spin.
Founder of LastBench Studio, a company that’s into filmmaking, photography and designing, Sabhapathy has created ‘Folk Cricket’.
Folk Cricket is a fusion of traditional arts from different states of India and their respective cricket players and IPL teams.
The internet has countless fan-made posters that celebrate Indian cricket heroes and as the new season of the Indian Premier League is live, LastBench Studio wanted to bring a new flavour to the sport that’s loved by millions of Indians.
Rohit Sharma has made it as a Warli painting, Virat Kohli as a Togalu Gombeyaata puppet, MS Dhoni as a Bommalattam puppet, Rashid Khan as a Cheriyal character, Shreyas Iyer in Mughal painting, Andre Russell in Kalighat painting and Sanju Samson is painted in Phad style of painting.
These posters have a fresh and bold look.
LastBench Studio shared on their website, “Folk Cricket takes a huge leap by breaking all traditions around cricketing posters and characters. This was born purely out of our passion for arts, cricket and creativity.”
