Now that's called fun :D

Ok, I know I've bored everyone silly since 27th Feb 2010 , continuously yapping about the match I went for. And yes, this post is about that, so brace yourself! It's a long post, if you ignore it, I don't care :)


I went for the India-SA match in Ahmedabad. My first match LIVE in a stadium. I had made a list of 'things I want to do before I turn 18' and the only thing I hadn't done then was bungee jumping and watching a live cricket match. And now, when I'm almost 1 month short on turning 21 I'm so glad I saw a live match!


Due to the %$@#%@# traffic, we reached inside the stadium to greet the Indian team in a huddle. I didn't know how to react when I saw the lush green grass and the Indian team who were so close to our stand. I screamed and the uncles in our stand chuckled at me. Btw, the person who gave me company is a girl called Shruti, who's my mom's colleague's daughter. She looks like blogger Akansha and was just like her- talkative and very chirpy! I was absurdly screaming till I got to my seat. Rohit Sharma was the lucky one to field in front of our stand. He looked back and gave a casual wave. Sudeep Tyagi and Abhimanyu Mithun came later on but both didn't look behind. Newbies naa. So expected. Then came, THE VIRAT KOHLI. OMG. His eyes are adorable. His tatoo was like sexy. He ran like dynamite. I screamed and screamed and screeched and yelled. He finally looked back and gave a casual wave to all of us. But no, yours truly wanted a special Virat something. I waited till he ran ahead to field and then slowly walked back to his original position. He looked up, luckily straight at me and I blew him a flying kiss. He shyly smiled and looked down. OMG. Cardiac arrest no.1 it was.


We weren't really lucky since SA posted 365. De Villiers was awesome. Luckily the A'bad crowd was sporting enough to applaud the century makers. Our stand was right in front of the SA dressing room. So during the innings break, we dashed in front of the stand and stared inside. A guy with goggles was looking at a laptop. He suddenly looked up and I waved. He stared back and I put my hand down. Then Shruti waved. He stared at her also. Then he waved and we waved back. We cheered thinking some random support staff guy waved at us. Then that dude comes out, and oh shit, it was HERSCHELLE GIBBS!


Ok, it's getting too long. During the Indian innings, Parnell and Peterson who weren't playing the game were sitting in front of our stand. After the first 7 overs, after a lot of exercising of my hands, Parnell finally waved at me. We had a lot of eye to eye contact after that, but he has a girlfriend, so never mind! Peterson was cute. He danced a little too. Steyn was OMGod-ly dashing. He gave a thumbs up when I blew a flying kiss, lol.


Ok, so we lost the match by 90 runs but I had the bestest time for my life. After so many years, I did something fun for one whole day. Being surrounded by disappointments and irritation all around, thank you India-SA for giving me that one day of happiness which is surely going to last for some months :D


P.S- I gave my stand a reason to be embarassed. Yusuf Pathan came nearby after the presentation ceremony so I screamed "YUSUF" and he looked and waved. I lost my head and yelled "Dhoni ko bulao please" and he wasn't wearing his shades, so he gave me such a venomous wtf look while my stand chuckled happily.

There is nothing as exciting as watching a live one day match! And it gets even better if your team wins, so I think you should not mark your list as complete until u watch them winning!
