Am a big cricket freak and as other every Indian, cricket is my religion. Its evident that its in my blood because my Dad is a very good batsman and has used the cricket bat many a time ..err to spank my bum and Mom should have been a good bowler as she throws stuff at me with damn good accuracy.
Also i belong to the famous Adyar Guyz team and so have quite an experience on the Indian turf. I always used to be the man of the match on all occasions, (BOOK CRICKET!!) because i have a specially designed book which does not have "0" in it.(Book Cricket is a game where you score runs by flipping pages and counting the single digits on the left hand pages) . So Its cricket in any form and i have mastered the BOOKCRICKET art.
It was the Cricket season in England and i thought why not do some county cricket and become a Kevin Pietersen :P , so i approached the local county team"Highfield" to grab a place for this season. I was not aware till i reached there that you don't have "One Pitch catches" and " LBW is out" and " it was a Cork ball" as all my heroics back home have been with plastic and tennis balls.
Anyways with much courage and gentlemanship of English cricket i entered the nets. They always had a try out session for new comers and as there were two teams(A and B) and each team had one spot open, i was delighted that either way i would end up in any 1 team.
So i padded up and went out like my DADA ( am a crazy fan of Sourav yu see) , after all overactions there was a guy who looked similar to Darren Gough who came blasting into bowl ......ZOOM and i thought he has not bowled yet, but the bang sound behind me made me realise that my middle stump was in shatters !
Captains of the both the teams came running to me, i thought "End of a marvellous cricketting career" , but suprisingly both of them were fighting to put me in their own team. Bewildered i asked them "What the ...?" for which one of the captains replied
" Mate , We both have 10 damn good players and we were lookin out for one dumb player...so don't wanna miss one like yu" - Now i realised i have let down Adyar Guyz, a shame to my cricket! But nevertheless i got the spot, so does it matter really..I now play for Highfield and Skandia ( don't ask me what i play) !
