I often use the word कुट्टी (kutti) in casual conversation myself. It means small. And so I was quite amused that @ashwinravi99 used it as the title of his charming cricket show.

"I often use the word (kutti) in casual conversation myself. It means small. And so I was quite amused that @ashwinravi99 used it as the title of his charming cricket show. When he asked if I could be part of his kutti stories, I was quite excited. Here is part 1 of a cultural and cricketing look back at the World Cups. 1975 & 1979. We recorded it and the next thing I know is that he is back on the field and I am back in the commentary box!" he said.
In this post, one social media user replied "India is really amazing. In our childhood we used that word often for breaking friendship. Of course it would last only for few hours max then would again become friends by touching each others fingers
Now I don’t see kids using that"
That was कट्टी. Or, as we used to say in Hyderabad कट्टिफ़— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) September 23, 2023
To which Harsha Bhogle replied to him about the actual meaning of the show name.
There were many concerns over veteran spinner Ravichandran Ashwin's likely selection in the team for the Cricket World Cup 2023 after his selection for India's three-match ODI series against Australia. Axar Patel was injured during the Asia Cup 2023, and the India versus Australia series was viewed as a challenge for Ashwin to establish his mettle once more and make a case for himself in the series.
Head coach Rahul Dravid was very clear that the series is not a "trial" for Ashwin before the opening ODI game in Mohali.
