Silver lining (man, it’s cloudy here)

I woke up at 630 AM on a Sunday, drove to a cricket ground somewhere in Renton, got soaked in the rain, almost got hit by a bat flying towards me at the non-strikers end and headed back home after 12 overs had been bowled. The people in charge noticed that conditions might be slightly unfit for cricket.

Two questions that need to be answered after every game of cricket:

a) Did you win? No.

b) Did you get gaaji? Yes.

Good day of cricket.

"Gaaji" is your oppurtunity to bat. Especially if you bat a lot of balls and not score any runs.
