Cricket is the national obsession of Indian men. It is the be-all, end-all, sport-of-sports, source of rivalry and redemption. I once made the mistake of cutting across the outermost edge of a cricket field as I was bringing lunch to one of the players (my boyfriend at the time). The venom directed at me was incredible. “Get off the field.” “You’re in the way.” They waved violently and glared at me with incredulous expressions. One might have thought I had ventured into a minefield, such was their alarm at my straying a few feet into their territory. Moral of the story is: cricket is not a game, so don’t act like it is.
