i was five years old when i started playing cricket as opener then i was glued to sunil manohar gavaskar the opening batsman of india.
i concentrated on cricket so much so i myself become gavaskar in my solid defence and
duly my street co cricketers saw my mastery and made me open the innings of all our games....
and duly i wont dissapoint them and i will stand till the end of the match scoring runs in slips in singles etc....

and then i to score runs quickly adapted the process of slowly moving forward without the knowlege of anyone that i am moving and hitting the blower for fours....

and sridhar my friend in young age saw that and in due time called me as "inch thief"

ie he scores runs by stealing space intelligently...

i think back....

with love,
dhorai.
