Hi, my name is Nitesh Mathur, aka Nit-X! Welcome to the Broken Cricket Dreams blog.

There are more than a billion people in this world who at some point in time wanted to be a cricketer, and I am one of them. I dreamt of being a No. 3 batsman saving test matches and hitting winning runs. Well, that did not exactly go to plan, but I have since become an avid follower of the game. Every game is important to me — World Cups, from Australia to Zimbabwe, Test matches to Associate qualifying tournaments, it does not matter. As long as there is a live cricket, you can guarantee that I will be checking the scorecards, watching the game live on TV, and certainly, discussing the game and statistics with family and friends.
