    When you spend a drunken BBQ, held for your own birthday, explaining the ins and outs of the LBW law.

    When your four-year old little girl supports the West Indies to wind you up during the latest Test/T20/ODI series

    She supported Oz during the Ashes as well, because they had a 3 on their shirt, and that's how old she was then.

    Or when you walk along a street and you see a club cricket game and go in and watch, and then a) ask some random guy the name of the ground and b) take photos.

    It should be said it was a Melbourne 1st Grade Club game though.

    Haha. Also should include spending ten minutes drunkenly debating whether or not Murali throws.

    a. When you try to explain the game to disinterested folks like Chinese, Mexicans, Canadians

    b. When you try to spin any round object to gauge it's behaviour

    c. When you use it as therapy for anger-management, stress-relief

    1. When you roll out of bed and check up on the cricket news and then post on forums for long enough to only leave you time to brush your teeth before hurrying to your first class.

    2. When you almost planned to do a semester abroad in Australia because India was touring there.

    3. When you make up 8 teams of 15 players each in 2 divisions, with 2 overseas players each, in your head so that you can add some substance to the cricket you play against your wall.

    4. When you've spent little over a year developing an online cricket game that will probably never reach completion.

    5. When you have the pleasure of answering, "Cricket" to the question, "How can you do all these different accents?"

    I do most of everything in this thread. Except maybe the seam in the apple.

    When you convince your company that productivity will actually go up if they agree to show the WC Final in a large conference room over the projection wall.

    When you've single handedly popularized cricket throughout most of your school and single handedly started a school team, much like Amir Khan in Lagaan , and enrolled your team in the inter-school season and 2 tournaments and organized a Police-Student game and found your team a coach (just a teacher/supervisor in reality)... and to top it off, won your team there only game of the season with your part-time offspin when in reality you're an opening batsman and a medium-fast bowler.
