Like most of us who have grown up watching cable television, playing computer games and surfing the internet, the most profound quality i have is of “Low Attention Span”.
That is why I am loving the new avatar of cricket (the only collective stress buster for a billion Indians). Call it Twenty 20 or T20 or masala cricket it has all the ingredients to keep u hooked to the small screen for 3 hours.
In the inaugural ICC Twenty 20 Cricket World Cup we have already witnessed several upsets, huge sixes, one tie breaking bowl out and a good dose of thrills.
I would love to see a Ten 10 Cricket World Cup, probably by 2010…and will especially be thrilled if at least 25% of the multiplexes in India, screen those matches instead of screening the non stop nonsense that Bollywood (Hindi Film Industry) produces…
Just hours before the 2 semi finals being played out in South Africa, between India & Australia, and Pakistan & New Zealand…i will stick my neck out and predict India and Pakistan as finalists. I may very well go wrong but a India vs Pakistan Twenty 20 World Cup Final will not only please us immensely and unite one billion people for at least a day..but also will boost ICC’s bottom line to a large extent.
For now, let me throw away the cynical shades in my mind and lets cheer for India..
Chak De India…(i was not much impressed by the film….but i love my country…a lot)
