I dont hate cricket!!!

In my life, I never expected that I will actually watch Cricket in intervals and report the score to someone..

I for one person, don't believe in this whole game of cricket. I know your expression, dear cricket fans, but I really cannot sit through fifty overs of the game watching two people play the game amidst the seemingly pointless, unbelievably loudest cheer.

I do admit that there must be something I am missing here, else how will I ever be able to explain the high blood pressure levels, loudest cheers, noises of the highest decibels in some Indian neighbourhoods, when a cricket match is going on?

When my mind started thinking like that, I didnt realize that I unconsciously got pulled into it.

The cricket game as such is very much like contagious laughter... Some where in your life you get drawn into it. I improved from the "I hate cricket" status to "I dont mind watching the last five overs of the game but I cant stand the whole game and most importantly the time that goes for a solid waste along with it".

Presently, my husband is at a work site and is eager to know the score of the World cup match that is happening in Dacca as I type this post. I check the score ( sometimes the game also!!!) and the website once in a while and let him know the details!!! This is something unbelievable in my life!!! I do it with zero detest for the game which is the biggest surprise.

None of what I think about cricket changes in my mind, but still I must admit that I finally did get drawn into the inevitable law of India and its crazy menfolk (womenfolk who can make time for it as well) - Cricket Game. I just decided that I must sincerely admit that I lost the match of not giving in to cricket as a game to someone, and I thought blogger was the best place.

I don't love cricket as yet, but I don't hate it as much as I used to.

India score : 301/2 India vs. Bangladesh at 4:46P.M IST.

Somehow reminded of the advertisement quote in the Bank of India Advertisement : We all change for the ones we love. And I am inclined to think it is true!!
