Me cricket crazy!

Megha Sharma

I must admit beforehand that I am not the resident expert on the gentleman’s game (Ps: have a major feminist grudge against this nomenclature!!), but nevertheless the frenzy gets to me too. The ongoing IPL has me up in arms, literally and metaphorically!

Being an avid SRK fan, I couldnt resist endearing myself to his team of boys.. But, being a delhiite for the better part of my earthly existense, I owe a certain part of my loyalties to the home turf as well.

My boys, all smashin in black and gold, started with a bang – faltered with a whimper – and struck back with a fist pumping high in the air.

Cricket tantamounts to a relegion in India, though I personally would not like to endorse obsessive ranting for one single sport, which works to the detriment of others.

I might be the last person to be able to differentiate a square cut from a cover drive, but I sure do know how to cheer when I see a hit heading to a six…

Hoping one of my teams (let me be frank, I wish more for my Knights!) makes it to the semi-finals, I am sure to bedeck myself suitably, and cheer till I am hoarse!

A dear friend of mine recently cast aspersions on my ambitious hopes for my boys. You see.. he is a Mumbai supporter. Now, as much as I love Tendulkar.. I definitely love SRK more (Can you blame me there!!) and thus am revelling in the Knightly stature of team Shahrukh!

Here’s to the Knight Riders!!!!!!

    Just for the record, Mumbai will win the IPL.
