Beach Cricket!

Given that we are in the middle of the knockout stages of this ICC Cricket World Cup, I thought I should may be write something about cricket and that goes with the season’s theme.

I may not have watched any match live in the cricket stadium this world cup season, but I sure did get a chance to see live and also take part in the game of beach cricket that had captured everyone’s attention at Patnem Beach in South Goa.

When the match began, only local goans were there, but soon the interest caught on and foreign nationals and other Indian tourists like me joined in. Soon, it was a fantastic extravaganza. The tennis ball was perfect on the hard floor of Patnem Beach. And when the ball went towards the water, we got a chance to get wet and splash around making for an all round workout. And the best part is that, once we were all tired after our games, we could plonk our backsides on the beach and sip some cold brew.
