Cricket at MIT

Interestingly, this is something I had not done while going to school at MIT. This weekend, we played Cricket on MIT's huge football field. Playing with 'taped' tennis balls on Astro-turf was a unique experience.

The pitch had a high bounce and it took getting used to. I played with the team, I sometimes play for, Killadi(A Hindi word that approximately translates to 'star-player') against a team of MIT students, well versed in the ways of the Astro Turf surface. (Yes, I played against one of my alma maters.)

It was a lot of fun and we expect to play a few more times there his summer. Maybe we'll have a 'day and night' game soon. A special thanks to my SDM classmate Ankur Sinha for organizing the game.
