    You know you are obsessed with cricket when...

    • When you see an open area of ground your first thought is to the potential of playing cricket on it
    • Everytime you want to get rid of a piece of paper you bowl it into the bin.
    • Practicing a latecut when alone in the lift...
    • When you keep tossing objects high up and trying to catch it....
    • When you check cricinfo and cricketweb every 2hours for updates
    • When you randomly shout out your favourite cricketer sometime in the day with some sort of commentary quote
    • When you put some food in the micorwave for 30 seconds, turn around, settle into a stance, look at where the fielders...step down the track and hit a six, turn back, eat your food
    • You practice legspin actions with an apple.
    • You plan your toilet visits in between the cricket breaks.
    • Your kids are named after cricket players
    • When you look at an open space ahead of you, you think to yourself this will make a perfect run up and then you go ahead with your bowling action without a ball
    • 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
    • When you play indoor cricket in your friend's basement and keep track of all the averages, stats, etc.
    • When your homepage is cricinfo.com
    • When you try to find a seam on an apple

    Darn, I qualify for at least 50% of those things.

    At least I don't sleep with my box on or use it as protection...

    Yeah, do all that. Also practice backwards defense randomly when waiting on things like food or drinks.

    You book all your tickets to next season's international and domestic cricket within five minutes of them going on sale and plan your summer holidays around your cricket viewing 'commitments'.

    You can remember - Arnie Sidebottom playing and his son Ryan
    Robbie Langer playing and his nephew Justin
    Bob Blewett playing and his son Greg

    Maybe that makes me obsessed AND old!

    I've done it (and most of the others), also had a faux net whilst doing my shopping in Asda's.

    When your first priority after coming back from holiday is to trawl through several weeks worth of cricinfo news pages.
