My love for cricket

Cricket, the game India swears for. The game that sends people in a trance. The game that is discussed from newspapers to local trains.

Cricket, the gentleman's game. Cricket.. what?

I remember the days when these guys in my building would try and convince me into playing cricket. I would often be handed a bat and be bowled to. I would, however, keep staring at the ball and more often than not, hold the bat downside up.

And I ran like a lady carrying a pair of quadruplets. I could never finish a run - and was almost always the one who got out on a duck.

I started avoiding the game - because I would be the person people did not want in their team. That's when I decided I did not want to be on the team!

So when someone says 'cricket', the first thing I visualize is an insect that is known to sing at nights!
