Today is a historic day for the cricketing fraternity of India as the country plays its landmark 500th test match, the fourth country to join the 500 club. While Skipper Virat Kohli is at the helm of the current team that is playing against New Zealand at The Green Park Stadium in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, it was CK Nayudu who led the first ever Indian contingent to a test match back in 1932.
The game of cricket that was brought in the sub-continent by the British has become a religion for India. From being weak, India rose like an underdog to win two world cups so far under some brilliant cricketing legends of all time. Let us cherish the rich history of cricket that has culminated to our culture, religion, faith and thought process. After all, cricket is India’s favourite pastime.
