Ask any kid what he wants to become when he or she grows up and pat comes the reply – either Shah Rukh Khan or Sachin Tendulkar. Of course. There might be other choices as well but the point is that in India, it is either Bollywood or Cricket that rules the hearts of people.
When the men in blue won the international cricket world cup tournament earlier this year, waves of celebrations swept the entire nation. With fireworks lighting up the night sky, it appeared as though the entire nation was celebrating a mega festival.
Cricket is followed like a religion in India and its craze spreads across to all possible arenas as well. We can see vernacular forms of the game like the ones that young kids play out on the streets, better known as galli cricket. We can see lots of local teams at the district level that compete against each other in the state level cricket tournaments and so on.
