You don’t play for the crowd, you play for the country – MS Dhoni
INDIA WON THE EFFIN CUP!! Sorry for the caps but I still haven’t gotten over the whole excitement after the victory. I still have a huge amount of shouting to do to get this feeling out of my system!!!!! Its the best feeling you could ever get. And I was alive for it!! WOOOOHOOOOO.. The match the feeling. When the match begun I was at a resto for lunch with my friend and her sister and that feeling in the resto amount of energy all freaking positive. People running around with the flag in the resto after every wicket India took !!! OH MY GOD!!!
(My blog post is going to be grammatically incorrect)
Then in the evening walking on a completely deserted road!! And watching MS Dhoni take that final winning score by hitting a 6!!!!!!! OHMYGOD!!!!!! And of course
Sachin Tendulkar finally winning the world cup after playing 6 of them!!! 😀 😀 😀
Trust I wasn’t a cricket fanatic ever! Probably as cynical as anybody who hates watching the matches. But when our country won in the semis and the feeling that flew in the nation in my city it just made me realise that even if the game has a lot of drawbacks with the ‘fixing’ etc etc. Its bringing a great deal of joy in every persons life out here and thats really important for a country like India that has faced too much of shit and if cricket brings in joy then whats the harm in it? Even if this fanaticism is meaningless (like worshiping Sachin Tendulkar’s idol – literally) Its still worth it. And you will agree with me if you are able to feel the exact same energy that I am feeling right now! 😀
