My good friend arvind introduced me to this form of the game playing in the Somasundaram ground in T nagar, Chennai - 17. It inspired me to join the summer coaching camp at school!!! That was the first and last of any summer sports camp i ever attended!!
For the next 5 years of my life till i joined college i was addicted to gully cricket.We played like madmen in all of the summer holidays from 6am to 12 in the afternoon. We used to return home drenched with sweat and darkened by the harsh sun. We cursed the rain if it spoilt the ground and played no matter how hot the sun shone on us. We used to arrive early to catch a pitch to play!!! We would never have woken so early for our exams but when it came to pitch capturing we were there as first!!!We had bet matches, fixed matches and most of all it was fun matches... no seriousness to it. End of the day it was good fun and great friends!!!
