The first season of Inside Edge, streaming on Amazon Prime Video, may not be a masterpiece. But it was what you call a cult, entertaining, pulp series with the ludicrously engaging twists and turns, and an immensely talented cast. The series was based around Mumbai Mavericks, a team in the fictional T20 cricket series, Power-Play League, and the various corruption and powerplays involved both on and off the field. Taking inspiration with the various scandals involved in the real-life Indian Premier League (IPL), Inside Edge was a big hit among Indian fans of the OTT platform and also earned itself a nomination at the International Emmy Awards 2018.
