So it's obvious that many of us actually practice our shots in front of the mirror, in elevators, open spaces in public, in the shower, etc.
But how many of you actually make that "knock" sound from your mouth when playing the shot. I have to do it, or else it doesn't feel like a proper shot or that I've hit the imaginary ball firmly enough.
And after every "knock" sound, I usually follow it up by saying "shot" in accents ranging from British to Indian to Australian (which, sadly enough, comes out similar to my British one, except with the addition of "mate") to West Indian (this one actually comes out quite good).
Also, it's pretty awkward when you randomly feel the urge to imitate Akmal and say, "Bowwwwwwling, Danish bhaiiiii."
You know you're obsessed with cricket when you are working and then have a dinner you can't get out of during the whole day's play of India vs. England, and instead of watching the highlights, you record the whole day's play and watch every ball later that night.
Have rocked up to work with red eyes and most people think I had a late one on the piss for Thursday night drinks after dinner. Am choosing not to correct them by saying I stayed up and watched the cricket on delay.
That's not cricket obsessed. That's borderline ********.
When you burp, you point your finger up like the umpires do when a dismissal occurs.
I'm calling jono a ****** ftr.
My partner isn't pregnant but she still enjoys thinking up baby names. We've settled on a boy name but for a girl name I've decided to make it cricket related - Grace and Lily (Lillee) are currently up there. For some reason she's not a fan of Siddle. :)
