2003 Cricket World Cup final.
As the two Indian openers walked out to chase the mammoth target of 360 in 50 overs, a little voice inside the 6 year old boy watching cricket for the first time in his life said, “Well, this looks interesting.”
Nope! That voice did not refer to the chase, it’s the same voice that almost every kid in this country hears. The voice that separates dreams from reality. The voice that ignites the spark inside to do something big, to be the next Sachin Tendulkar (well, him because it’s 2003).
But as we shall see, that voice gets suppressed almost every time.
