Cricket is truly a religion in India and the Gods of this religion are Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohali and MS Dhoni. Thousands of children learn cricket with the dream of joining the Indian Premire League (IPL). Historically, Sunil Gavaskar started this fire along with Kapil Dev, Ravi Shashtri and many other. The year was 1983 when India won the world cup.
Today we are a cricketing nation. We have over 20 large stadiums, over 100 coaching academies, a billion fans and hundreds of brands of shoes, tshirts, caps, helmets, balls associated with cricket.
