A common happening in street cricket is that there are usually more players than a street can accomodate or more than eleven that are allowed by cricket rules. In such case all the aspiring junior players line up and the ‘khalifa’ captain chooses his pick according to match situation or his likeness.
Many a times I’d found myself in this line hoping to get picked up by the seniors.
Once i got picked up over a player who was 2 years my senior. To this the guy said aloud:
“dil toRne waale dekh ke chal……hum bhi to paray hain raahoN maiN.”
