    Truly frightening how young you were for that match. Remember it like it was yesterday.

    For One day cricket Its got to be Kenya's second win under lights against India in 2001, while the incident that really got me hooked on Test cricket would have to be that 100+ 10th wicket partnership between Gillapie and Mcgrath against New Zealand. Its still beyond me how after putting the Aussies in such dire straits New Zealand were unable to finish them off.

    I’m not quite sure. Cricket grows on you. And before you know it, it’s under your skin and the rhythms and beauty of the game are something you can’t escape from. I love its pace; the development over five days, it’s subtleties and how you have to follow the game for years and slowly seep in knowledge before you can fully appreciate it. And I love the culture that goes with cricket; switching on to the ABC is so comforting or listening to the BBC at 2am in the morning tucked up in bed as an Ashes battle is played out over the airwaves. It’s drama and art, and at the very least, sport.

    It's a mystery to everyone else

    It's international ( even soccer does not have int'l contests as much as cricket)
    It doesn't require great strength/athleticism
    It's sporting (at least, more so than others)

    Then you haven't yet fallen in love Richard. We mistake a hell of a lot of emotions for love

    Unfortunately, you wont know what I am talking about until you do.

    I assure you, I have. Five times at the very least - two of them being with the same girl.

    I wouldn't have asked her to marry me (and I doubt she'd have said yes either) if I thought otherwise.

    I thought so.

    Thats not falling in love my dear. You truly fall in love only once in your life time (if at all) and you never 'fall out of it" again.

    This is the shortfall of the English language where the word love is used to express a lots of emotions 'from loving your job or house' at one end to 'falling in love' at the other. Its the 'falling' that is the difference.

    In Urdu/Hindustani their are three words for love where English has only one. 'Pyaar', 'Mohabbat' and 'Ishq'. Its the last one which is true falling in love. It happens only once. The target could be an individual or God.

    and you never love another again,

    Too much you think? Ignore it.
