Cricket Match in a small Panipuri Shop:
   The India vs Ireland encounter may not have been a thriller to watch ...But I had great experience watching the match.I watched the match in a small Panipuri Shop here in Hyderabad.As I was waking past the road I saw cricket being played live on TV on that Shop ....I just thought a minute entered the shop and ordered Panipuri as The Panipuriwalla was serving the panipuri my eyes where on the TV.After having I occupied the a chair and held to the TV....even though the match was boring.Dhoni and yuvi were gradually playing towards victory..as I was struck to TV i never noticed the gradual increase of crowd in front of the Shop.

Cheer for Pathan's Sixes:
       With Dhoni out ....Yusuf Pathan was on crease ..As pathan hit a boundary ...a loud cheer from the crowd ..I just turned back and got surprised to see the huge crowd behind.Next ball to six and cheer was louder ..Sitting in a panipuri shop in Hyderabad...It seemed i was in a cricket ground.More to my surprised I noticed people were cheering in different language s...I am a malayali ,behind me two guys cheering in Kannnada....Behind that i can hear people cheering in hindi ,punjabi ..and telugu.It seemed entire India was cheering for the team.I understood why people say cricket is a religion in India.

BCCI show respect to Fans :
         BCCI which is cash rich and Politically motivated seems to forget the Indian fans who are the real hero's in uplifting the game as a Religion in the nation.Recent lathi charge on fans standing on huge queues to buy tickets for a match at VCA stadium ,Nagpur..showed the respect BCCI gives to cricket fans.Even though the world cup final is held in India ,It is really funny when we are hosting the world cup final ...that to in a cricket crazy nation only about 4500 spectators from billions of Indians can watch the match in the stadium.ow about the remaining tickets ...about 20,000 tickets to go to clubs linked to the Mumbai Cricket Association and 8,500 to the International Cricket Council.But I really doubt whether the officials like the CWG 2010 .....have sold the entire tickets to Politicians and bureaucrats  who are cricket crazy.....or may be they have saved the tickets for their loved ones ..... 

 Some Cricket crazy fans......
