Life is One Big Cricket Match

Many, especially in India, fail to get off the mark, and many others fall after scoring just a few runs.

At Ten we are still tentative.

At Twenty we set out to score.

At Thirty it’s time to settle down…hopefully for a long innings.

At Forty we feel fortified, though there’s yet no time for any winks.

At Fifty we take fresh guard. 

At Sixty we start playing a mature, senior innings. 

At Seventy our long vigil starts taking its toll; we sometimes have to retire hurt.

At Eighty we’re principally there, though sometimes we ask for a crutch – or a ‘runner’.

In the nervous Nineties we are content with singles – we are happy to take it one at a time.

Not many become Centurions. Earlier, only folk from the developed countries could hit centuries – now many Indians are hitting them also.

Tomorrow even double or even triple centuries could become the norm – with new equipment, technology and rules.
