In India, cricket is not just a sport – it’s a religion. When a cricket match is on, everything else takes a back seat. But who really made this sport larger than life in our country? None other than the fans themselves! Even though the sport is played around the world, it is us Indian fans who stand out. Here are 10 reasons why.

1. Live telecast at 4am? Bring it on!

No matter how odd the hours, we’ll be glued to the television sets even before the players walk on to the field.

2. Memorise World Cup schedule first. Birthdays and anniversaries can wait.

“When is India playing Pakistan?”

“15th Feb!”

“When is your best friend’s birthday?”

“Ummm…not 15th Feb.”
