Cricket, today, is a game which can be touted as the next big thing after Football . Cricket fans are spread across nations and now it is getting popular even in the nations where it was not popular before like Hongkong, Ireand and Afghanistan. There are two kinds of Cricket fans in the world, according to me. One of them are Indians and the other kind includes the rest of the world. Imagine MCG earlier this year in the Australia vs. India match. Even MCG’s own stands were baffled by the presence of blue in the crowd. The Indians owned the MCG that day in terms of team support. In typical Indian fashion, they rooted for the men in blue with all the vigour and passion. The passion of these fans cannot be matched anywhere in the whole world.
Now painting an exact stark contrasting image, of any Ashes match, however, heated it might get, its spectators will do nothing more than clapping upon a wicket or a boundary. The class and elegance of these people seems really fascinating to me as an Indian. One remembers the semi-final match of the World Cup- India vs. Sri Lanka. The flaring Indian fans were so enraged that they would not let the match continue. Such is the effect of cricket, especially in our country. We cannot, come what may, miss a match which involves India. And I’m not stereotyping. I am speaking on behalf of only those who are ardent fans and not everyone is.
But those who are, for them an India-Pakistan match is that secret ingredient a chef has been searching and he finally found it in some far-fetched country. We Indians are crazy about a live match and since we must work to put food in our belly, it is not always possible to sit down with friends and argue over what went wrong in that shot. So if you are among those who have roller skates tied to their feet, fret no more because we do have an alternative and it is dedicated as we are. Following a match live can get increasingly difficult and technology has not just contributed to Hawkeye and Sneakometer or Hotspot. You can catch a game live, in its full glory, on your laptop or phone. We have website portals to cater this need and they are pretty successful at showing live cricket scores.
