Money managers draw analogies between cricket and investing. Abhishek Banerjee, smallcase manager and CEO of Lotusdew, compares RBI’s management of inflation to India’s 1983 Cricket World Cup win. Banerjee says he picks pinch-hitters like a captain selects strategies for a cricket match. He believes it’s necessary to have all types of players, like heavy hitters and good fielders in a cricket team, for a successful investment portfolio. Banerjee sees an index fund as playing a Test match and a stock basket for T20 and One Day matches in investment strategies.
