A moving story about ambition, love, acceptance and finding your own path- a coming of age drama about two brothers who are raised by their strict, obsessive father to be star cricket players in India. The series is based on the novel by Aravind Adiga.
Selection Day revolves around fourteen-year-old Manju who is destined for cricket greatness—the only problem, he hates it. Controlled from a young age by his overbearing and cricket-obsessed father, Manju’s main role in life is to support his older brother and fellow cricket star, Radha. When the family moves to Mumbai and the brothers start at a new school, Manju discovers his interests outside of cricket and starts slipping away from Radha and his father’s grasp. More importantly, Manju becomes friends with Radha’s greatest cricket rival, a boy who is the very definition of freedom and confidence – concepts Manju has never experienced himself.
Selection Day will premiere on December 28, 2018, in all territories where Netflix is available.
