What are the Great Cricket Holiday Destinations
Cricket has been associated with speculations and superstitions. Cricket fans would sit in the chair for hours, in the same position, until the match finishes. They would prefer discomfort than watching their side lose to the counterpart. Most people would prepare dishes and would adorn a similar dress because in a previous encounter that their team won, they had been wearing the same dress and had prepared similar food. Cricket fans would not shy from doing the impossible just to see their side win. Fans would lose their voice screaming slogans and their heart would skip a beat every time they see something different being tried in the match. The anticipation and excitement of a win would make them go beyond limits at times.
