If you take the time to go through the thread you will find that Sanz was the one who chucked a hissy fit over the use of one word.
Put it this way.. India IS obsessed with INDIAN cricket team and its results and its stars and all that but we do LOVE cricket as a sport.. Partly it is because there is real daylight between cricket and the next popular sport.. A bigger daylight than there is between Sachin and his next closest rival.. A bigger daylight than there is between Murali and his next best.. And oh yeah, perhaps a bigger daylight than there is between Bradman and his #2...
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.
