It’s being often said here , “Cricket is a religion in India”, and that set me thinking. The just-concluded India-Australia One-Day International series could very well have been the summary of the “faith” of the religious Indian cricket fans.
Well, the 1st One-Day International was a practice match for Indians. After all, how could we expect the Indian cricket team to adjust to home conditions so soon.
The 2nd One-Day International proved that Indian Cricket was a monotheistic religion where MS Dhoni was the sole deity.
The 3rd One-Day International re-affirmed the omnipresence of the sole diety.
The 4th One-Day International dethroned MS Dhoni, and elevated Sachin Tendulkar up the pedestal.
The 5th One-Day International catapulted Sachin Tendulkar to near-immortal status, even though India tasted dirt.
The 6th One-Day International kicked everybody off the list.
Karl Marx once said, “Religion is the opium of the people”. Well, the Indian cricket fans seem to be high on cheap dope.
Cheers !!! 😀
