Cricket Overkill

Watching and following Cricket is part of the lives of most of us in India. It is pretty much the only sport that we tend to bother about.

Of late, however, I get the feeling that interest is starting to wane – in me, and others. Maybe it is the surfeit of all sorts of cricket with all varieties of times, maybe its just me growing older, maybe it is the lacklustre performance by the Indian team, maybe it is the disappearing star value of the players.

There was a time  when a cricket match was looked forward to with great anticipation, and especially the Tests. Now, there is a sense of deja vu in the matches. Australia and India started an ODI series — so what.

Anyone else get the same feeling?
