There are over a billion cricket fans in this world. At one point or another, each one has dreamt of hitting that winning shot, enjoying ecstatic moments in the winning huddles, or just playing the sport professionally.
Sometimes life does not go as planned, but “When one door closes, another opens.”
There is more than one way to live the dream. We can play cricket with our local club, at our universities, or the best form of the game—backyard gully cricket.
Nothing better than just spreading the love of the game in whatever way that is possible
I hope you have a laugh or even a tear drop reading the experience s below. Maybe we all could not become professional sports players. Maybe just a random cricket blogger or a fan (me). Or chose another profession-engineer and artists, or doctors and musicians, or started our own business.
But that is completely okay! We should not have regrets. Everyone has his or her own journey, and we should appreciate life just as it is. Just look back, smile, and enjoy the small moments.

@FinallyJamous “Didn’t realize my love for basketball until later in high school. Missed playing on team and missed watching so much of 2000s Lakers/Spurs/Celtics. Missed out on prime AI, Kobe, KG, Tim, Shaq, Yao, Nash, and T-Mac.” #Brokendreams
“It was during the first year in college. After training hard for 6 months, didn’t get picked in the squad due to politics and favoritism” #Brokendreams
“My broken dream in cricket, can’t bat, bowl, or field! Just sticking to the spectator seat for the summer of cricket! NZ playing continue to play great cricket. Test matches, ODIs, T20s – now good at all of them!”
Once I played one match for my village team Our team posted Target 70 runs in 10 overs I didn’t got to bat But opposition chased it within 5 overs and I didn’t got any over as well
Question: Broken Cricket Dream? All of us at some point have dreamed of playing cricket at some point in time, but then life happens. What is your story? Injury, school, politics, lack of skill? Answer: The latter
Ekdam sahi kaha…pehle job phir cricket. Did that myself and I am proud of my cricketing exploits in streets and gullys of Hyderabad…more than what I achieved professionally. Btw actual game ke liye Virat hai na 🙂
