If any of you desi girls haven’t seen your other half lately, you’ll know, like me, what’s happened.
An all-consuming, life-changing event is taking place leaving many a woman sleeping alone for nights on end.
Yes you know what I am talking about.
The Cricket World Cup is on at the moment in India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
If you have a cricket tragic man in the house, you probably haven’t seen him much over the past week and it’s only going to get worse as the matches get more interesting.
It’s safe to say the biggest cricket fans in the world come from south-east Asia (even Nepal where their national team isn’t good).
This year Rabindra says he is supporting Sri Lanka and Australia. He changes his mind all the time though so who knows…
It’s safe to say Rabindra lives and breathes cricket and will spend most of the night watching cricket rather than sleeping.
For me it’s not too bad because I actually like cricket. I have since I was a young girl and I am one of those freaks who enjoys watching a 5-day test without getting bored.
I know 80% of the players and can talk a lot about cricket.
But after meeting Rabindra my love and interest in cricket has dropped a bit because I am not interested in watching EVERY SINGLE MATCH PLAYED IN THE WORLD and I don’t talk about it as I am going to bed nor is it the first thing I think about when I wake up.
I only usually watch games that Australia are playing. However at the moment it’s the number one talking point in our house.
And with cricket comes his other true love. Not me. No.
This is a big shout out to all cricket ‘widows’ who’ll be seeing a lot of cricket and beer in their house this month and not so much lovin’. Hehe…
