    • When in class you have an impromtu game of cricket with somebodies shoe and a tennis ball. Yes I have done this.

    • When you plan to become rich to so you can go around follow your country around rain, hail or shine, win or lose.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW

    • Your kids are named after cricket players

    • When you are watching repeat telecast of zim vs bangla 3am in the morning!
    • You start calling your old uncle Mushtaq.....Mushee.
    • When u wake up in the morning and realize that u slept with ur pads on.
    • When youve broken at least 1 light shade in your house due to an expansive drive with a bat
    • When u get up in the middle of the nights before the test days to see whether its raining or not
    • When u see a racist guy you think automatically that his name is HAIR

    After months of trying to compete for your attention, your girlfriend finally asks you in frustration "What's more important - me or the cricket?"

    And you both already know the answer.
