Venkat Subramanya, Suffolk Park

Hats off to Mandy Nolan for a fine article bringing out the very essence of Cricket and the social bonding it achieves.

It is a team game but many individuals who play at all levels are beset by setbacks galore and the occasional success like a fine catch, runout, a wicket or scoring a few crucial runs gives one such an adrenalin rush – like a pop star on stage.

Coping with these kinds of setbacks in sport does help many, particularly the young, in their real life, to take successes and failures in their stride.

It also helps them to play fair, which by and large most do… but there are always exceptions.

Like when a batsman nicks a catch and pretends to be unsure if he hit it.

100 per cent of the time a batsman knows when he nicks, or when he takes a bump catch, and then pretends to be unsure. The game reveals the true character in a person.
