I wanted to tell you about my team. I have two of them.
Maybe you have a team too. In fact, I’m pretty sure you do.
I’m not talking about the team you follow. Sure “India” is my team, but this is not what I mean. “India”, as a cricket team, is an amorphous concept stretched across time and space1.
When I say my team, I mean a specific team, from a specific point in time that will always be my team.
Like I said, I have two.
During the 2003 World Cup, it seemed like destiny that India would win. That they should win. Of course, we hadn’t considered the competing destiny of the Australians, but at the time, if there was ever an Indian team that could have won a World Cup, this was it.
The batting lineup: Tendulkar, Sehwag, Ganguly, Dravid and Yuvraj.
