We have cricket in our bloodWe take sides
We glare at the bowlers
We hold our breath at possible run-outs
We jump in joy at a six
We clap for fours
And we pray earnestly ... for that single, for that no-ball, for that missed catch
No matter if we are watching a rerun of Lagaan, or the movie Patiala House on big screen or a cricket episode of Saas Bina Sasural on TV,
The World Cup in Bengaluru
And when it is a TIE
Strangely we don’t feel let down
for ...The match was good
|cricket in our blood!|
We do have cricket in our blood?
This is a picture of my grandson playing with his plastic cricket set. He is growing up in US, a country that is not really a cricketing one!
Now Electronic gadgets, Review rules, Powerplay, make the game all the more absorbing and interesting.
