Definition of Cricket (Indian version)

This is the unauthorized definition of cricket (Indian edition):

crick·et (krĭkĭt) n.

  1. An outdoor game played with bats, a ball, and wickets by two teams of 11 players each.
  2. An outdoor game on which the collective self-esteem of the Indian nation hinges. If we win, we’re the greatest people on this planet. If we lose, we are the weakest, most shameful ones.
  3. An outdoor game in India in which victory is not measured by the result of a match, but on whether the Indian team is better off than the Pakistani team. Currently, we’re winning!
  4. (most recent update) A game played between two teams, in which there is always only one winner…. Australia!

More definitions (though less fun ones) here.

    As an Aussie, I must say that I am quite proud of our achievement in this arena!

    Aussie perspective:

    Having been through past prolonged periods of failures by the Australian test team, I can relate to #2.

    For #3, replace Pakistan with NZ (at least in my household)

    Good post, well done

Passage for this Season

Philippians 2:11-13 (NIV) (12)Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, (13)for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
