Cricket In The Lap of The Himalayas

game of cricket in munsyari playground, uttarakhand

Often, the Himalayas and cricket don’t go in same breath. At such heights, everything comes at a cost, let alone single or doubles. Fall of a wicket is celebrated like a festival whereas boundary is a muted punch. Spectators gesture few words to the ground anticipating as if their words would alter the course of game. More often than not, it does. After all, spectators are those who play this game in their minds. And minds play better than a bat does. I forget to mention the Himalayas like they did while playing the game of cricket.
