    At the age of 11, you play book cricket with player names like Victor Trumper, Trevor Goddard and Pankaj Roy.

    You have a dream in which David Lloyd, apropos of nothing, offers Jesse Ryder a bouquet of roses.

    When you have a dream that India winning the world cup was a dream. You wake up and reassure yourself that it did actually happen.

    1. Read from the first post and loved each and everyone of them as I do most of them as well. Gun thread.

    And to add on,

    2. when you get scolded by each and everyone around you that cricket is going to ruin your life and your career
    3. when you start a fantasy competition in paper in your college since most of your friends were not willing to pay and play it in cricinfo and update the scores for all players after every match manually

    Can say a lot more but it might tend to look like boasting so will stop here..

    Yeah this didn't actually last.

    You know you're obsessed when there are holes to cover up with process drawings in a coworker's office wall because a few assholes made sure nobody would play cricket in your country for years to come.

    You know you are obsessed with cricket when you get up at 4am to watch a series you know you are likely to lose before it even starts. Will still get up for the 4th test even if we are 3-0 down if only to try and spot my dad in the crowd.

    That sounds like some very niche gay porn site, tbh.

    You know you are obsessed with cricket when your son learns the english word "bowler" earlier than "tangerine" in his first language.

    You know you're obsessed with cricket when a Sky commentator mentions a Test match player who retired thirty years ago, and you remember his Cricketweb all time rank, and why you trashed him because of his stats against non-minnows.

    When you agree to be the mascot for your provincial cricket team, which involves dressing up in a spandex one-piece suit and showing occasional dashes of speed.
