Cricket Crazimania

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
I am not a big fan of cricket in my early childhood days.  But slowly I got addicted to the game. Now I am attacked to the sweet disease Cricket Crazimania  :) I am a diehard  fan of  Chennai Super Kings. How I became so close to Cricket in my life??? 
My Dad is the only person love to watch cricket in my home. I always scold him to change the channel and keep some movies, but he never listen to anyone. The Remote control was  my Dad control until the match got over.  So, every day i was  forced to hear the running commentary.  After few years, I wanted to know why this game is  so popular in all age groups. With so much of curiosity, I went  to  near  my dad asked to teach me that game. My dad happily explained all about the cricket. First the cricket terms are I felt like some Mathematical term. After watching few matches I fell in love with that thrilling, fun, emotional Game.
Before, I used to scold my dad to change the channel. Now my sisters started  to telling me the same :P... I finish  all  my work before the match starts. If I have some pending works to do, I will postpone that work. Always I give first preference to watch cricket. Some silly things I did for not to miss a single shot.

Group Studying at my Home:   We had a function in one of my relative's home on IPL Match day. I lied to my parents that “I have an important class test tomorrow. So, I cannot come with you. Already I called my friends for group studying in our home. So you carry on daddy and amma. I stay in home and I have lot to study for tomorrow test”. Once my friends arrived, we  went to my room and watched the match without missing a single innings.  

Keeping Alarm in mobile: In my last semester, I had some pending works for completing the project. I was working on it seriously. That day the match was on 3 Pm. I had a fear that i missed the match in my busy schedule (Project). So, I kept alarm in my mobile for reminding me the match time.

Setting TV ON timer: This is a funny trick not to miss a shot. It worked for me great.  I Kept the Star sports channel, set the TV timer ON to Match timing, raised the volume level and turned off the TV. All set as i planned and  I was taking rest on bed and ended up to sleep. After an hour, I woke up on hearing the loud noise from TV.  I  freshen up myself and continued  to watch the match without missing a shot. is a boon to all Sports Lovers.  The New Website looks Stunning with many new features. It has changed the way I follow the game. The Most loving feature in the is ACTION RECAP and SCOREBOARD. I downloaded Star Sports App in my Mobile too. It’s in my Handy always. Now I do  not have tension and worry about missing the shot. I can watch it whenever I wish, I want.
