All about the joy of cricket. 

Cricket is a game that brings joy to a billion people around the
Cricket brings my family, friends and neighbours together...
tightens up our bond... brings joy to our lives and sets the party mood...
I do remember the 2003 World Cup India vs Pakistan match.
It was Mahashivratri that day so all the colony members fasted for Team India to win, including my younger brother who was in class III.
We never burn firecrackers on Diwali but we do burn them when our team wins.
During the 2004 Champions Trophy, we skipped our meals due to the match, because none of us wanted to miss a single ball. My dad broke our TV and bought a new one the very next day.
During this World Cup my friends and I skipped our final semester exam and our college dean expelled the whole group for a week.
Finally one more thing, my baby brother is playing cricket for the Delhi under 16 team and got selected by Mr. Sandeep Patil for NCA training.
