Cricket Crazy

Today while flipping TV channels, I froze on Ten Sports. Some blokes were playing cricket. A few minutes later I realised that it was a limited overs game from the West Indian domestic league.

Is this a sign that we really should be worried about our obsession with cricket? I mean come on, if domestic cricket from another country, especially one which is not playing great cricket at the moment, can find media buyers on cable TV, then maybe we really are hopelessly addicted to the game. No wonder politicians of all shapes, sizes and colours are fighting to get into the business of running Indian cricket.
